I tried a couple of ways to correct this by editing the taxon associated names but my attempts failed with different error messages and I can’t edit the name through the edit taxon page, probably because I didn’t create the taxon. The user who did create the name is not a curator so they may have trouble correcting it too.
Is there a procedure to correct these mistakes without resorting to a taxon swap?
Scientific names of taxa can’t be edited unless you manually created it. Since these come from the auto importer; the only option is to create the proper name and swap the malformed one I to it via a taxon swap.
