Mentioned here, but I think it’s really a different issue, so I’m opening a new thread.
Let’s say I’m looking for all species/subspecies in the genus Genetta. The old search works perfectly on the first try:
But using the new search, there’s no way to limit to the genus Genetta. I can choose to restrict just to taxa, but here’s what I get:
A mix of the 21 taxa I actually want, plus an additional 42(!) taxa I don’t want. For some, I can at least see why they fuzzy-matched from the highlighting, but for some, like Cytisus scoparius, I can’t even tell why it matched until I go to the taxon page (the French common name).
I tried using quotes to force an exact match on the string genetta, but it still returns the same set of 63 results, the only difference is that the first two hits are reversed.
For me, this really breaks the ability to use the new search for taxon searching, so I hope either it gets fixed, or the old search stays available.
