Failure to update community ID when subspecies identified

Platform: web (but I don’t think this matters)

Browser: firefox (but I don’t think this matters)

URL: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/115627460

Description of problem:
one ID to genus
one ID to subspecies, confirming genus
should report subspecies as current consensus ID, instead reports genus.

See this topic: Leading subspecies IDs should change the obs taxon like leading IDs of other ranks
Basically, subspecies IDs don’t function the same as other IDs for some reason, which is very annoying but not technically a “bug”.
