Automatic obscuring of endangered species, e.g., Sonoyta pupfish

I had always thought that observations of threatened and endangered species were automatically obscured, but I looked at observations of the Sonoyta Pupfish (Cyprinodon eremus) today and saw that the map shows the exact locations that the observer entered. The Sonoyta Pupfish is one of the rarest fish in the world and is critically endangered. I looked at a couple of other endangered species and they were still obscured. Is this a bug, an oversight, or a change in policy?

seems intentional. see: https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/98927/flags. you may want to discuss over in the main site if you disagree.

odd. I know that it was obscured at one time.

it was, but you can see in the flag that it was later unobscured.

I flagged it.
