Observation turned to Casual for no obvious reason

Not a big deal, but reporting in case it relates to a somehow deeper bug…

This observation https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/8271997 had a single ID - Euspira fusca - and was thus marked as “Needs ID”. I disagreed and IDed it as Cochlis vittatus (another species in the Natacidae familiy). Surprisingly, it then became “Casual”. It remained as “Casual” even when a second observer also agreed with Cochlis vittatus. I attach below the screenshot at this stage.
Not sure if relevant: Cochlis vittatus has just be added to iNat as a new taxon.

Update: solved! I.e., now at “Needs ID” as it should.
Thank you to whomever solved it (or maybe it was just a matter of giving it time?)

Looks like it was casual because someone checked “No” for “Based on the evidence, can the Community Taxon still be confirmed or improved?”, and the community ID was not at Genus level or lower. Then, someone added a “Yes” vote for the same item, so it was returned to the “Needs ID” pool.


Thank you! I never remember to go and check those settings, will remember next time.
