This observation (https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/24336342) just got ID’ed to species. There are currently 3 IDs on the observation; one ‘copepod’ and two ‘Impexus hamondi’. Despite Impexus hamondi being a copepod, it says the copepod ID is a maverick one.
Impexus wasn’t grafted properly but its been fixed now. But the Copepods ID is STILL “Maverick” - I have noticed this happen in the past too when an obs goes RG with improperly grafted taxa and an otherwise valid higher level ID is left hanging. Re-identifying it fixed it when it happened to me.
It’s fixed now, cheers Reiner
try reinstating your higher level ID (not making a new one though) and see if it goes maverick or not
Feel free to flag any taxon you find that isn’t “grafted properly”. Curators can fix a lot of that stuff. Just note that some taxa are locked at a certain level and can’t be changed so easily.
