Sometimes the taxon changes don’t actually appear to change anything. For example, I just got a notification a taxon change for the Spoon-billed Sandpiper.
No name change, no actual taxonomy change, the only change appears to be in the ID number associated with the species, from 339595 to 979640.
Given that there appears to be no actual taxonomic change, what is the purpose of this?
Is it that there were two entries for this species and they needed to be merged, or is it something else?
