Add ID problem with Volucella bombylans complex

The following species complex does not come up as an option to make an ID when I type in Volucella bombylans or any subset of those characters in the box.

Did you originally create the taxon as just the name Bombylans? After you fix a name on the taxa/edit page, you have to also edit the taxon name on the taxonomy tab. I don’t understand why those fields aren’t linked, but yeah, requires 2 edits in the current system.


Oh thank you! That explains it. Yes, I had to make the name like that initially because there was “already a direct descendant of the parent taxon with the same name,” often a problem when creating a taxon complex in the system.
