Description of problem

Below a certain point the observations on the “explore” page have no relation to the search criteria entered at the top of the page.

edit to add: The header says there are 27 observations. The last actual Weigela search result is observation (4 × 6 =) 24 on the page. Search result 25 - 48 are completely unrelated. The last three, 49, 50 and 51 are Weigelas again for a total of 27.

Also: weigela, ugh.

It doesn’t show me those excessive observations and count is 27. Is it happening with you again if you open a separate searh like that?

I can’t replicate. Using the link you shared I only see 24 observations, all of Weigela and three IDed to species.

I’m not getting the Japan ones, but I am only seeing 24 observations… not 27. are the “3 extra ones” by chance just repeats of 3 of the first 24? There is a long standing bug report for that duplication that might also be at play here…

Well, now the header only says 24 observations. Presumably somebody took this opportunity to correct a few.

Also, on a different computer, but also Chrome, I no longer see the unrelated observations. Odd. @kiwifergus do you recall details of that other bug report? I don’t seem to have much luck finding it.


Thanks. If this is related it would be an old bug. What I originally saw doesn’t seem reproducible, will have to keep an eye on it.

Extras were bushes under observers’ indows, anyway everything shown was of the right taxon.
