Failed update after taxon change

Can’t remember if this has been noted previously as a subspecies-related glitch:
Cherrie’s Tanager (Ramphocelus costaricensis) has been lumped into Ramphocelus passerini. The change was implemented in November. However, there are still 51 RG observations of the now inactive taxon: https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/10059-Ramphocelus-costaricensis. The identifications have been updated, but the taxon has not changed, though oddly some similar observations have been updated successfully.


Adding one more subspecies ID does make the change happen:

As mentioned in a similar topic,

I don’t think this is the case here as taxon swap was done back in November, seems too long a time?

Possible then that it’s an incomplete indexing issue, which seems to happen sometimes. One thing you can try is just toggling one of the DQA (Data Quality Assessment) items at the bottom of the page. (Just down-vote then up-vote again, or check and uncheck.) Sometimes this seems to force reindexing of observation data.

Also, can you include the URL of this specific observation, in case staff want to check it out further?

That sounds like it. Toggling the DQA seems to partially resolve things, eg https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/17148850 where the Community ID is now correct but the individual IDs are still Maverick, while adding an agreeing ID fixes it completely https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/16334590

Thanks for the URLs. I will leave them alone in case Staff wants to investigate further. The first one you listed does seem stuck.
