Nub species only have the main Linnean ranks.
Name usages on the other hand can have more than just the main Linnean ranks. NCBI for example has 21 levels. Therefore the name usage would definitely have the extended taxonomy link to display all this information.

As I understood, the data structure of the backend will be changing. @Markus, will the Nub taxonomy still use the old structure (only major Linnean ranks), or is it also moving over to the checklistbank structure? One case that we never handled properly in the past were the groups who have subgeneric names as part of the taxon name, and where publishers insist that it is misrepresenting their data if the Sectio is left out.

No, the nub is already in the new data structure and could in theory use any number of ranks. But it was agreed with Dave and Tim that we only want the Linnean ranks in the nub and no intermediate ones - primarily we don't have full coverage of those ranks and they would appear only at some places causing a serious inconsistency. So we do not even keep the subgenus in the current nub I am afraid. The original usages of course have that
