Whale error when adding new species with source to locked group


Try to add the species Loureedia phoenixi, add ‘World Spider Catalog’ as source and https://wsc.nmbe.ch/species/58251 as URL leads to

Can you share exactly what the source fields were? I wonder if it’s the same issue as https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/long-source-title-causes-i-ate-inaturalist-org-error-when-creating-new-taxon/2944?


no long titles/links

The link isn’t the issue, I get the same error when only filling out the title field

https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/1101959-Loureedia-phoenixi I was able to successfully create an inactive taxon. We’re not taxon curators for spiders so we can only create inactive taxa grafted to that group.

When I tried to create an active taxon with that name and Source title, I get the whale shark.

It should instead throw this error message, which I got when I removed the source:

Ancestry destination <Taxon 47118: Order Araneae> covered by a curated taxon framework. Contact the curators of that taxon to request changes.
