On Sep 30 last year the Species count on my profile page showed “1905”. I did not log in for several months due to family issues, and when I did at the end of March, the count showed “1052”, i.e., a difference of 853 species. That day I uploaded some new species (with RG to the species level), and the count again went down, to 1051. It has not moved since, even though I continue to upload new records, again, with RG to the species level.
Is this a bug, or is there an explanation for such a dramatic fall in the count?
