Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.):
Step 1: Create observation through iOS app and initially ID it as Lithobius forficatus. Obscure location
Step 2: Have another user identify the observation as Lithobiomorpha and check the “No, but it is a member of…” box
Step 3: Subsequently ID the observation as Lithobiidae through website
These are the steps that supposedly led to my observation’s community ID not being updated to Lithobiidae, which it should have been based on the way that I understand iNat to work. Normally, an observation’s community ID corresponds to the most refined ID with which more than 2/3 of IDs agree with, unless the observer has opted out of community ID (which I never do).
I don’t know whether this truly constitutes a bug, but it’s rather unusual. I know I could simply duplicate my observation, ID it as Lithobiidae and move on, but I would like to preserve the comments left on it by pmbrousseau.
I’ll be happy to share more information if needed. Cheers!
