Please fill out the following sections to the best of your ability, it will help us investigate bugs if we have this information at the outset. Screenshots are especially helpful, so please provide those if you can.

App version number, if a mobile app issue (shown under Settings or About):
Browser, if a website issue (Firefox, Chrome, etc) :
Safari on iPadOS
URLs (aka web addresses) of any relevant observations or pages:
Screenshots of what you are seeing (instructions for taking a screenshot on computers and mobile devices: https://www.take-a-screenshot.org/):
Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.):
View a list
Click/tap on the taxon search bar
Search for “severe”. 3 virus taxa will show up, but the first 2 will appear as birds and the last one as a mollusc.
Made a github issue here: https://github.com/inaturalist/inaturalist/issues/3746
But as it doesn’t affect functionality and is in a niche part of the site, it’s low priority for fixing.
Bacillus is a better example. The insect genus displays first, then 2 insect species. Then the bacterium genus, but it is orange and has an insect icon. It is confusing.
And then there are more Bacillus species of both hemihomonyms, and you can’t tell the difference.
this also happens when grafting a taxon or creating a taxon change—anywhere an interface that looks like that shows up
this is what it looks like when you search bacillus (in a taxon change, but it looks pretty much the same when editing the ancestry of a taxon, except that taxon IDs and inactive taxa aren’t displayed):
245607, Bacillus subtilis
245605, Bacillus cereus
950431, Bacillus megaterium
450830, and foulbrood (Paenibacillus larvae
410655) are bacteria, and the rest are stick insects, but since bacteria don’t have their own icon and all the bacteria in the list follow insects, they get the insect icon and color
if the first results in the list don’t belong to an iconic taxon, they display as such—it’s only those following an iconic taxon that are affected. here’s what happens when you search coronavirus:
all of these are viruses except Potamophylax coronavirus
1234489, which is a caddisfly; the viruses before the caddisfly display correctly as no iconic taxon, but after the caddisfly they inherit the insect icon and color
This should be fixed now:
