Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.):
Observation 30846341 has 3 IDs (plus one withdrawn). 2 are at the subfamily level (Syrphinae). 1 is at the species complex level (Eupeodes americanus complex). The Observation Taxon is “Complex Eupeodes americanus”, but the Community Taxon is “Subfamily Syrphinae”.
Observation 17726517 also has 3 IDs. 1 is at the family level (Syrphidae), 1 at the tribe level (Syrphini), 1 at the species complex level (Eupeodes americanus complex). The Observation Taxon is “Complex Eupeodes americanus,” and the Community Taxon is “Tribe Syrphini”.
So far so good. With these IDs, neither observation is Research Grade, and both are correctly showing a community taxon above the genus level, with an observation taxon at the complex level. But…
Now I click on the Data Quality checkbox “No, it’s as good as it can be” under “Can the Community Taxon still be confirmed or improved?”. (I know it actually can be improved; this is just to demonstrate the behavior.)
Now both of them are Research Grade and the Data Quality Assessment section has a green checkmark for “Community Taxon at genus level or lower” and a green checkmark for “has ID supported by two or more”.
But the Community Taxon is not at genus level or lower.
The Observation Taxon is, but the Observation Taxon is not supported by two or more IDs. The Community Taxon is.
Is the Data Quality Assessment actually using the Observation Taxon, not the Community Taxon, to determine that this is at “genus level or lower”? Or is it seeing a Community Taxon at the subfamily or tribe level and incorrectly labeling it as “genus level or lower”?
