I just downloaded records of US maples (taxon ID = 47727). I was doing some quick sanity checking with the data and noticed that the Iconic Taxon Names included 5 records listed as Arachnida (2), Animalia, Fungi, or Mammalia. (Which is weird since they should all be Plantae).
Looking through the records, I think what’s happening is that the Iconic Taxon is set by the first ID suggested, even if that ID does not match the final community ID.
