So parrotfishes have been moved into the wrasse family. This observation has 3 votes for species and 2 that were swapped from the old family (Scaridae) to the new family (Labridae). What’s mucking up the formula here? The 3 species-level ID show up as Scaridae still, instead of as Labridae.
oh, I think I figured it out. the subfamily was swapped to Labridae, but the old family (Scaridae) is still showing up as valid.
I definitely agree, though, that existing agreement at a lower taxonomic level should not change when classification at a higher taxonomic level gets reshuffled. Will have to ponder how that might be avoided…
Yeah, since everything is working as expected given that taxon change and the placement of that species in the taxonomy, I’m not seeing a bug here. Closing to focus the conversation on the taxonomy of these fishes in one place: https://www.inaturalist.org/flags/402441
