All species of Euphorbia sect. Anisophyllum added to sect. Anisophyllum in iNaturalist

It's taken longer than it should have, but I have now finished adding all the species known to be in sect. Anisophyllum to the sect. Anisophyllum taxon in iNaturalist. This means that you can now view the names of all the species in the section by simply looking at the taxon profile page: https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/506796-Anisophyllum
There are still some synonymy issues for a few species that I'll have to look into at some point, but this should be more than enough until more observations start coming in from the regions that have the aforementioned species.

The next step would be to try to add in the ranges for all of these, but I'm not sure I'll ever get around to doing that. What I'm trying to focus on more is finding what species have been photographed and which haven't in order to focus outreach efforts on geographic regions with high numbers of species without photos (that is, when I'm not focusing on Ph.D. work or can find a way to tie it into Ph.D. work).

Also, all Euphorbia species that have been recognized at section level by Euphorbia PBI (www.euphorbiaceae.org) have now been grafted into their respective section in iNaturalist except for the following sections:
Esula (6 taxa to add; 36 species to add to section)
Helioscopia (6 taxa to add; 45 species to add to section)
Euphorbia (34 taxa to add; 174 species to add to section)
Monadenium (1 species to add; 61 species to add to section)

This doesn't include the many synonymy contradictions nor the very likely possibility that I made mistakes. Also, not all Euphorbia species are known to section level yet. That said, if anyone wants to finish up what I started, these last four sections are the largest and most time-consuming taxa to change (except sect. Anisophyllum, which I took care of). The help would be much appreciated (@trh_blue, want another project :-)). After this is done, it will be a matter of looking at the remaining ungrafted species in Euphorbia to see if they or their synonyms are recognized at section or subgenus level. I doubt all will ever be fully grafted as the taxonomy isn't fully known yet, but we can get a lot of the way there.

Identification links

Here, I will keep a list of the links I use to help me identify. I have decided to publish this to help others get a sense of where I am prioritizing my identifications if they're wondering. Since all taxa in sect. Anisophyllum known to occur in both the continental US and Taiwan have now been observed, I'm prioritizing other areas of the world as I have time. Part of my motivation for coming to iNaturalist was to see photos of all species in the section possible. Since that goal is complete in the US and Taiwan, I've decided to refocus my identification efforts. Future activity in those to countries will likely be devoted to select taxa, specific ID requests, and creating identification guides. Antilink here just refers to the opposite conditions of the link specified (e.g., for a link with all observations excluding Texas, the antilink means all observations only in Texas).
