Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.): I’m probably missing something here, but the community taxon says there’s only agreement at the family level when all three identifiers agree on the genus.

Step 1: Person 1: It’s Pilea.

Step 2: Persons 2 & 3: It’s Pilea capitata

Step 3: Community taxon: Users agree this is Uritcaceae.

I’m puzzled because I’d expect the community taxon to be Pilea.

The problem is not with community taxon, but with Pilea capitata, which is connected not to Pilea but to Urticaceae. So Pilea and P. capitata are concerned as sibling taxons.
You have already flagged P. capitata, so its resolving should help.


Flag now resolved


Thanks, All, for the feedback and resolution. I put in the taxon flag after posting my bug report, but I’m still figuring out how taxa and community taxa work on iNat, so I wasn’t entirely sure if I’d found the problem (or if there was really was one). I’m glad it was an easy fix.
