Common name capitalized two different ways in the suggestion box

When typing a common name into the “Suggest an Identification” box without capital letters, the list of potential results includes the common name twice in each result: once with initial capital letters, and again as originally typed. This seems wrong.


This bug doesn’t happen if the common name is typed with the same capitalization as expected:

NOTE: For reasons of style, iNaturalist often automatically displays common names in title case.


Common names for plants, fungi, and other non-animal taxa should be entered in lowercase (e.g. spotted gum) except for proper nouns, which should start with a capital letter wherever they appear (e.g. Tasmanian blue gum).

I think it’s because the lower case name is what’s supposed to be entered but it’s displayed capitalized?
