Yes iNaturalist a hugely valuable observational resource with 
wonderfully easily searchable archives.

Still, nothing is perfect and iNaturalist is no exception.  One problem
is the sighting dates are sometimes faulty .

Example: This sighting of an unworn, brightly colored monarch
butterfly near Salt Lake City, Utah on April 10, 2021
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/73849524 <https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/73849524>

Utah residents point out the photo shows what the Great Salt Lake
landscape looks like in the Fall, not mid-April.
