Ancestors on taxon page change format and fail whale for about tab

Was there an update so that the ancestors of a particular taxon now have the respective color of their group? And become center justified?

I wouldn’t think this is a bug but it only seems to be happening at certain taxon levels. There sort of seemed to be a trend (such as all tribes) but it’s not super consistent across different groups.

For the affected taxa, there is also a fail whale on the About tab (same issue as this).

And if you’re trying to search from such a page the options get weird when you mouse over them.

I can replicate, I let our developers know.


Fixed, it was related to the Wikidata changes deployed yesterday.
