When I view a taxon page such as Triteleia laxa the distribution map shows the aggregate of Casual observations plus RG and other Verifiable observations. For example, all the observations in Europe and on the east coast of the United States for this taxon are Casual/Cultivated and show in the taxon map.
Unchecking “Verifiable observations” makes the RG/Verifiable observations go away, but keeps the cultivated ones. Checking “Verifiable observations” shows both.
Strangely, if I uncheck “Observations w/o Media”, that does hide the cultivated plants. It seems the behavior has been this way for some time, but I’m sure it used to work as expected. There’s a thread here about a similar issue in the past.

Any luck figuring this bug out? I keep tripping over it when I expand the location map for an observation to compare its location with other iNat observations for that species. In that context you don’t get the option to choose which layers to see, so all the casual observations show up as well.
Thanks! That does look better, and it’s helpful to be able to separately toggle on/off “Observations w/o Media” and “Captive/Cultivated”.
One suggestion though: Would it be possible to use a paler color for “Observations w/o Media” and/or turn them off by default? Right now they’re on by default and they draw the eye much more strongly than the regular RG observations. I assume that most people looking at a taxon map want to know where the species has been reliably observed by iNat users and that finding outliers is a minority use, so the dark brown color is rather misleading.
