Should a similar sounding genus be listed in iNat in the taxonomy tree?

Specifically, I was looking at Carnegia mirabilis, an African moth with no observations on iNat currently, that is currently listed under the genus Carnegiea, the saguaro genus. I see that the saguaro genus was renamed on iNat from Carnegia to Carnegiea in 2016.
According to ( it looks like the Carnegia genus should be in Saturniidae.
Is this something that needs to be changed/updated?

You need to add a flag to taxon in question, so curators will see it.


Thanks! I wasn’t sure of the proper way of doing this.
