Unexpected community taxon

Platform (Android, iOS, Website): Web

Browser, if a website issue (Firefox, Chrome, etc) : Chrome

URLs (aka web addresses) of any relevant observations or pages: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/41290902

Description of problem:

I believe the observation page at the above URL displays the correct community taxon but for the wrong reasons. Since the first ID (Flowering Plants) does not support the community taxon, shouldn’t it be “Community IDs: 2 of 3” instead of “Community IDs: 3 of 3”?

The first ID does support the community taxon because Trillium is within Angiospermae


Yes, that Angiospermae ID is not disagreeing with the finer IDs.

I briefly added a disagreeing Angiospermae ID, and here’s what happened:


I suppose it’s a little counterintuitive that there are only 2 IDs of Trillium, but right under Trilliums it says there are 3 IDs. There are 3 IDs and the community taxon is Trillium, but there aren’t 3 IDs of Trillium.
