Can't create new genus - the dreaded "I ate iNaturalist.org" screen results

Trying to add Matsumursine Volynkin & Huang, gen. nov. (https://zoobank.org/urn:lsid:zoobank.org:pub:86F17262-17A8-40FF-88B9-2D4552A92F12)

but get the “i ate” screen when searching for this genus in order to add the taxon.

I have tried several times over the last few days, to no avail :(.

Would appreciate some guidance as to why this genus causes the iNat database to revolt, please.

I see someone was able to create it for you. I realize this doesn’t answer your question about why you are having difficulties, but it was, at least, creatable.

Was the error when searching for the name through the main header search, the “species search”, or somewhere else?

If it was while you were actually adding the taxon (inaturalist.org/taxa/new), then I wonder if it’s the same bug as this one: https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/trying-to-create-a-new-taxon-but-am-getting-the-i-ate-inaturalist-org-thats-why-its-not-working-error/2944/9 considering the paper title is quite long: https://www.biotaxa.org/em/article/view/58551
