This is clearly a bug with one particular taxon, Rumina decollata. A significant number of observations don’t have a Community Taxon, even though there is more than one ID. This keeps observations at Needs ID when they should be Research Grade. Reindexing the observation doesn’t help (through adding annotations, DQA votes, etc.), but adding an ID does fix it.

When I’ve had weird issues like this before, often deactivating and reactivating the taxon in question (and sometimes the parent also) will fix things. Sometimes it has to be done several times. When I first saw this issue, there were 24 pages of observations of Needs ID on Identify. I deactivated/reactivated and it went down to 6, but there were still some observations left over so I did it again. Then the pages went up to 23 and back down to 10. Obviously this wasn’t really helping that much so I stopped.
There were weird issues with this taxon before, but deactivating/reactivating fixed them (see this flag). There seems to be something off with the taxon, and it could be that changing the parent at some point made things weird, but there are no swaps so I’m not sure where else things could have gone wrong.
