Increasingly it seems like more and more of these are getting imported by users using the external imports tools. When they show up in the ungrafted taxa list, I am curious what approach other curators feel should be taken.
Guidance on these less official node levels in the curator guide can I think be best called as cautious, leaning towards preferring against their use :
- if you graft them into place, they just end up as orphans, nothing moves under them. It can be a huge task to populate them, even worse if someone imports subfamility X, but it turns out subfamilies Y,Z, A, B, C and D also exist
- set them as inactive, which will inevitably lead to flags about why did you set my subfamily inactive, it is a perfectly valid name.
- other ?
