How can I find a flag I may have made?

I was looking at a taxon page where some kind of bean had a taxonomy that led up to Mollusca, so I flagged the taxon page but then it looked like it changed to plants immediately, so I tried to delete the flag and it said only curators can do it. Is there a way I can find a flag I have made, if I don’t remember the specific taxon?

I repeated the sequence, but I don’t know if it’s the same bean taxon or not. This time I didn’t delete the flag, but the taxonomy changed by itself. It’s like Schrodinger’s cat or something.

If you go to you can use the search options. For example, here are all flags on taxa that you’ve made.


Thank you. I only found one of the flags, and I left a comment that it changed itself.

Something is still strange with the taxonomic linkages here. If I search for the molluscan family Phaseolidae, all the observations are of the plant genus Phaseolus:

Strangely, if I search for the molluscan genus Phaseolus, no observations are found:

So, somehow a handful of bean observations are mis-linked at the family level, but not at the genus level. Maybe this is just a database update-lag from whatever got fixed earlier?


Just as background, in case it somehow ties in with what you are saying, before I went to the taxon pages I was using Identify to go through State of Matter Life observations, and I came to observations that looked like they should already have community IDs because there was more than one ID for beans. So, remembering that @bouteloua had earlier mentioned that the community IDs could be made to appear by faving and then unfaving each observation, that’s what I did, and the community IDs did appear. I went to the taxon pages because I was getting tired of doing it the other way one by one.

I flagged the beans that thought they were molluscs - and Loarie has resolved the flag, sorted out the taxonomy. Now the beans think they are legumes.

I’m still seeing 54 observations of plants (and none of molluscs) when I search for the molluscan family Phaseolidae. These observations also appear on the Phaseolidae taxon page under “Observations.” I flagged Phaseolidae for curation because of this.

Looks like their species are all back in the correct (Fabaceae) part of the tree, so this may be a re-indexing lag for family Phaseolidae. Suggest giving it 24 hours and see if the numbers have reset.

Yes! A search for Phaseolidae now returns zero observations (presumably correct; at least no plants).

Time to get some real Phaseolidae observations into iNat, before the beans take over again! :sweat_smile:
