Issues still persists, see this taxon updated today, only the fields for the Queensland status were changed yet both show as updated

Tried this a few times on our test server and couldn’t replicate. @lawnranger exactly what did you change for Dipodium punctatum?

Dipodium punctatum has two statuses one each for Queensland (QLD) and South Australia (SA) . I changed the following QLD fields: Status, URL and IUCN Equivalent. I did not update any fields for the SA status.

Caleana major and Caleana minor are other similar examples, when updating the (now) ‘Queensland, AU - Least concern’ status I made certain I only changed fields for that status, my cursor never entered any of the fields for the other statuses.
