Incorrect time zone

Incorrect time zone is shown for some of my observations, matching neither my location nor the location/time of the observation. This is even though I have a default time zone set in my account setting. I can’t fix the time zone manually because the correct time zone of the observation (DST) is not available in the menu (perhaps because it is currently not being used?). It is inconvenient because people are asking me to correct the time of the observation (e.g. for night time photos) even though it is in fact correct, but shown using incorrect time zone. Any advice how to fix this would be appreciated.

Sometimes including some links to the affected observations and noting what platform you are on (desktop, Android, or iOS) helps others sort out what might be happening. Screenshots are also sometimes useful in some instances. Knowing the correct time zone might help if the issue is a missing DST time zone. Thanks!

For example this observation is incorrectly showing SAST time zone. It was uploaded from the iphone app with the data taken from the picture. The correct time zone of the observation is DST. Although it is a night time photo, the time shown is 10:35 AM.
