Record not showing as "research grade"

Link to the record in question: I was reviewing “needs ID’s” for Texas and found this. I think I’ve seen similar things before but this one I’m sure of. Shows as “needs ID” for me despite 3 (now four, I attempted to “agree” with the ID to see if that made itshow as “research grade”.

In the Data Quality Assessment section, someone checked the box that the community ID can be improved. That keeps it in Needs ID. If someone who knows the subspecies checks the box that says it can’t be improved it should become Research Grade.

I’ve seen this situation come up from time to time. Is there a way to search on the parameter below by species?:

— Based on the evidence, can the Community Taxon still be confirmed or improved?

… when the ‘Yes’ votes outnumber the 'No’s? I don’t see this on the Filter page. Maybe it can be accessed via the URL or maybe I missed it on the Filter page?

Thanks.

There is a topic about filtering by number of IDs https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/sort-observations-by-number-of-identifications/3603, if that helps. There is also a topic devoted to URLs: https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/how-to-use-inaturalists-search-urls-wiki/63/214 which you might want to take a look at to see if anyone has brought this up before, or, if not, to possibly get some help.

@paloma Thanks for the links. I checked on wiki link and the same question was brought up there and the answer is that it currently can’t be searched for using the URL or otherwise. This would be a nice addition to have. Thanks again …
