What's with this not-Unknown creature showing up in the Unknown search?

I’m here: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/identify?iconic_taxa=unknown&order=asc&place_id=6857 Unknown things only, sorted by date added ascending.

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/3490803 is showing up first, but it was identified as Isopod Iridescent Virus two years ago!

Am I missing something? I’m quite new to iNaturalist so maybe something is going on that I’m not aware of yet?

A search for unknown produces 2 things, things with the label Unknown and forms of life whose iconic taxa is not in the major categories used by the site. Viruses fall into the 2nd category, hence you see it there.
