Flowering Plants (Subphylum Proteobacteria)

Seriously, what is going on here? Flowering Plants (Subphylum Angiospermae) has become Flowering Plants (Subphylum Proteobacteria)! It is consistently showing up when I type in an ID to the suggestion box on the Identify page, but once I add the ID it reverts to the correct version.

I’m seeing Angiospermae.

I’m not seeing this. It’s not listed anywhere I can see that would be confusing. Are you still seeing it? Might be a weird extension or something?

https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/83702-Proteobacteria, there is also a name for a lexicon Japanese? missing.
[missing “en.lexicons.” translation]
[missing “nl.lexicons.” translation]

Probably a Japanese lexicon that is removed? https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/プロテオバクテリア

Had to find out for myself, so I went and IDed a few Unknowns. The Flowering Plants appeared as Angiospermae. Could have been a temporary glitch.

It’s gone now.


The taxon mixup has returned. I’m once again seeing it while IDing Unknowns. Too tired to get another screenshot though.

Okay, new problem - sort of. I thought at first this was the same bug in a different form, but actually I think it’s a case of overzealous autotranslate (as described here). Posting it anyway since it is sort of a bug (most likely not within iNat though) and it’s funny.

Why are you using autotranslate? Is that the built-in auto translate in Chrome?

Yeah, for translating comments and notes on observations where the observer uses a different language. I was working on Hong Kong Unknowns, so there were a lot of chinese placeholders.
