Topic: R6 reporting on subspecies - hierarchy problems
We hold some records of Forester moth which are attributed to the subspecies Adscita statices statices rather than the species. The Forester moth is an LBAP priority species and I have a custom designation in R6 to allow me to extract LBAP priority species (which is built from species-level taxa), so I was curious why a number of Forester records were not appearing in the report output. It seems that according to the Organism hierarchy, the sub species is linked directly from the sub-genus and is not related to the species (see attached). This no doubt comes about from the previous update of the lepidoptera dictionary which caused so many problems for R6 users. The same issue occurs with burnet moths and no doubt others too. Please can we try to resolve this ongoing issue with the lepidoptera dictionary otherwise reporting using the hierarchy is really problematic.
