Parentheses around scientific names

Platform (Android, iOS, Website): Website

Browser, if a website issue (Firefox, Chrome, etc) : Microsoft Bing

URLs (aka web addresses) of any relevant observations or pages: Identify · iNaturalist

Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.):

When I go to identify anything in the identify menu (doesn’t happen on observation pages) all the taxa that don’t have common names have parentheses around the scientific name. I don’t believe they had parentheses before, so is this a bug?

Edit: Just found this post:, you can delete my post here if you want.
