¿INaturalist and GBIF?

I am doing research with data from GBIF, and lately I have also been reviewing data from INaturalist, since most GBIF data comes from INat, however, when checking some records in “Research Grade”, I realized that did not go immediately to the GBIF database, what is the process? How long does it take for a record that has just acquired the “RG” label to go to GBIF?

Thanks for your time.

@kueda updates the iNat dataset about every week or two. The date of the last update always appears on the dataset page (17 June, at present):

For the record, iNat contributes just about 30 million records. That represents about 1.5% of all 1.8 billion records, so maybe “most” is a bit strong…
