Please consider renaming Plectranthus scutellarioides as Coleus scutellarioides.

Plectranthus scutellarioides.
This is a synonym of Coleus scutellarioides

Coleus scutellarioides is active and this taxon isn't, but this taxon has many observations. What's the procedure to follow here to move the P. scutellarioides over to C. scutellarioides? Is it just a taxon swap (even though a taxon swap has already been done)?

Yes, it has been done already. Plectranthus scutellarioides redirects to Coleus scutellarioides and it is not possible to submit an ID as Plectranthus scutellarioides. So, this flag is not needed.

searching Plectranthus scutellarioides doesn't redirect to Coleus scutellarioides for me though... is it just my problem? I wonder if it was the right thing to inactivate this taxon without the swap being committed yet, now there are hundreds of observations under an inactive taxon that doesn't show up in the search bar

I lumped my duplicate flag into this https://www.inaturalist.org/flags/477020

I'm going to go ahead and sort this out with the objective of curating int he direction of POWO (e.g. ending up with Coleus scutellarioides rather than Plectranthus scutellarioides) since no one seems to be objecting to that end result.

OK I went ahead and changed Plectranthus scutellarioides 291284 to Coleus scutellarioides 291284 through the backend without a swap and then swapped in the smaller duplicate Coleus scutellarioides because 291284 has so many observations (>10k) the vast majority of which are planted
