Increase Filter by Place box size on taxon page

Please increase the Filter by Place box size on the Taxa page. There are 4 similarly named places (with very different maps) for the area I am in that show up in the Filter by Place (and other places choices). On that page, each choice is only differentiated by one letter and I constantly choose the wrong one.

this talks about the same problem described in an existing bug report thread: since this is probably more appropriately classified as a feature request, i wonder if that other thread could be merged into this one?
