I don't understand why this was swapped. Could you explain, please?

I don't understand too.

Yeah! The first one (Lentinus arcularius 791751) was actually nested under the genus Polyporus instead of genus Lentinus, so it was swapped with the one with the correct location in the taxonomy (Lentinus arcularius 1395761)

If I understand well the taxon you swapped into the other was a duplicate?

Yep, although that was partially my fault. I'm a new curator so I'm still learning how this stuff works, and another curator told me that I could have changed the taxon's parent in the Edit Taxon page instead of creating a new taxon and swapping them, since the scientific name doesn't change. Since I had already created the duplicate, they said to go ahead with the swap. In the future though I know to edit the taxon directly when the name doesn't change

Okay, no problem. If you just created a duplicate and there's no observation in it you can still delete it.

Oh, good to know! Would that be with the "drop" function in a taxon swap, or is there a different way for taxa without observations?

When you edit a taxon you have a small "Delete" gray button on the bottom (next to the "Save changes" button). If you are the author of the taxon you can delete it. If you're not there will be a message saying you can't delete the taxon.
