Location is shown in a user's observation lists, but not in that specific observation

When I was reviewing the records of butterflies of China, there was an observation which did not have locality data, and was considered Casual, but when I viewed that person’s entire observations, the locality data is actually there!

The observation is: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/3819296
As you can see it does not contain any geographic information

But in the observer’s page, you can see the locality data (Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden):

I see what you mean, @yixianshuiesuan, we’ll take a look but might not get to it until Monday, California time.

you can just edit your observation, deleting the coordinates but leaving the place name. i did this on this observation: https://www.inaturalist.org/photos/34552773, and now that observation is casual because of missing location but still shows a place name. i don’t think this qualifies as a bug.

Yes, I think that’s what happened here. Looking into it there’s no sign of a bug.

Oh I see! Thanks for clarifying it.
