When I compile the example below I get Hailey et al. 2018 in the pdf. When I uncomment the second citation I get "Hailey, Mori, et al. (2018)Hailey and Mori (2017)." Why did the first reference change when I un-commented the second one ? I don't want this behavior.

I understand biblatex sometimes adds authors to disambiguate citations but that seems unneccessary in this case...
