Bug in the dropdown

Or, rather, bug not in the dropdown. I’ve posted an observation of Closterotomus trivialis here https://www.ispotnature.org/communities/uk-and-ireland/view/observation/794568/closterotomus-trivialis - it’s relatively new Mirid bug to UK but spreading, and is in the NBN Atlas https://species.nbnatlas.org/species/NHMSYS0021109892 and, for example, iNaturalist https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/356404-Closterotomus-trivialis but I couldn’t see it under either its current approved or its deprecated alternative name in the iSpot dropdown.
.
I imagine there will be a lot of this as new species colonise the country with global warming and the ever-increased movement of marketable plants across Europe and further afield. But how often is the dropdown refreshed? Quarterly? Annually?
.
My apologies if someone can see the name in the dropdown and I just missed it through carelessness…
