Heads up: Some or all of the identifications affected by this split may have been replaced with identifications of Coenonympha. This happens when we can't automatically assign an identification to one of the output taxa. Review identifications of Coenonympha tullia 59185

@loarie, this one affects a pretty large number of observations, so I definitely wanted to check with you on it. The Pelham catalogue finally recognizes california as a species, which BOA has done for a while. The two species do not overlap, so the atlases should maintain a species-level ID for everything. I'm working on setting up all the necessary subspecies swaps, too.

I also wanted to check with you because I wasn't sure if using an "old" inactive taxon as a "new" output is okay.

Please let me know if there's anything I should adjust regarding this split. Thanks!

can we make flags (in this case on Coenonympha tullia ) to discuss these and link to draft taxon changes from them? That way if the decision is to delete or otherwise not commit these taxon changes there's still a record of the discussion?

Can you include there a description of the fate of the ssp?

Yes, will do!

@nlblock Hello Nick. My link to BOA shows C. tullia as a Paleartic species and C. California as an American taxa. Is this what the taxon change is accomplishing?

@hasfitz5, almost! It turns out that the two Alaskan subspecies belong under tullia, but all others are now under california.
