Observation with community id of flowering plants despite more specific id

This observation has two ids, flowering plants and Clinopodium menthifolium ssp. ascendens. The community id is flowering plants. Shouldn’t it be the subspecies id?

No. A subspecies ID doesn’t change the community ID unless there are two of them.


Whether it’s a bug or a feature (I think there’s a thread with some details), it will at least advance to needs id within the correct species if it gets a genus-level agree. I just added one to that record as a demonstration.
