Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.): Sometime app is adding identification to my observation on my behalf. For instance in this observation - https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/47570605 - on Feb1 it added ID “Gastropods”

Step 1: Add new observation

Step 2: select ID (in my case Gastropods)

Step 3: Someone adds new suggestion (in my case Flamed Tigersnail)

Step 4: I get notification and see someone suggested new ID, I review id and than click back button. Somehow at this point app is adding new ID (on my behalf) and defaults it to the original one (in my case it will be again Gastropods). At this point I am not getting any notification, so I don’t even know that I “suggested” some new ID. In this particular example, I got new ID suggestion from another user, went to my observation to review it and noticed my “suggestion” and I removed it. It happens quite often. Not sure if I am doing something wrong

Could you have accidentally clicked the agree button at Gastropoda?

No - I am confident I didn’t.
