I suspect this is more of a “taxon swap done incorrectly post” but because it is likely to happen regularly I figured I’d post it here (as well as commenting on the swap in question) in case there can be a work-around to prevent it from happening in the future.
There was a recent taxon swap that moved Geum fragarioides to Waldsteinia fragarioides. The problem is, if there were any IDs made at the Genus level, those would all of a sudden (after the swap) become conflicting identifications and could move the record from Research Grade to Needs ID. The only way this could be avoided is if the swap had been done at the Genus level.
Here’s an example where this recently happened (note that the record is now Research Grade because the original genus-level ID was withdrawn by the observer): https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/32302516
Like I said, not sure if this is totally expected and the “bug” lies with the swap being done at the species level when it should have been at the genus level, or if this is indeed a unforeseen consequences of a swap done the normal way.
