This has been around since Season 7 also, and it is kinda weird that people know about but it has not been addressed.
Purple 'Efficient' Saurians have always been an exception to Purple Boffs... Instead of having 2 'Superior' Traits, they have 1 'Superior' Trait plus the Space Trait 'Efficient', and this has always been the case, ever since they came out... A even bigger issue is that Trait-wise, there is no practical difference between 'Green' & 'Blue' Efficient Saurians except for Skills, and Skills can always be trained over...

To correct the display of 'Efficient' Saurians would probably require a major change to the Data structures that Cryptic uses internally, and probably isn't worth the potential for introducing new Bugs into the system.
