Help with different count-number of species

Dear Community,
I observed a difference between the count-number of species i already discovered. On the main “Obeservation-Site” it says i have 88 species observed, in my profil only 59 species are oberved and if i click on species 77 species are observed. See screenshots:

Could someone explain this issue to me ?
