The correct way to do this is to Edit the subspecies A. c. woodhouseii in the Taxonomy Viewer (F8). First search for and select this subspecies in the list. Then click the Pencil button.
This brings up the Taxonomy Editor pre-filled.
Clear the subspecies field and enter "woodhouseii" into the species field.
Then click the Update button.
If you want to change the position, just drag and drop it on another species. It will be placed after that species you drop it on.

Also, while the ABA count was updated after I changed the species name for my sightings in the new species' resident states, which implies the new species is actually in the tax as shown in the shot, I am not sure the WORLD count updated but I am not totally sure on that. Does anyone know if that is possible if the elevated new species is in the tax? BD has closed and reopened several times as I tested the error message.
I am just not sure what you are asking and what is happening with what you did.
You should try to undo what you did and follow my instructions above. But if you get into trouble, let me know, and I can get onto your computer over the internet and fix it for you.
