Location on the map is correct but not the name of the area

I have a problem with this observation: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/33201644.
The location on the map is correct but not the name of the area. Cuneo (Italy) is not in France and is more than 100 km northeast !
For this other observation, made the same day in the same island, the name of the area is correct: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/33201021

Those place name suggestions come from Google Maps, and are not always the most accurate, but this does seem unusually far off. Depending on your workflow when you uploaded the first observation, it may have picked up the name from Google Maps before you moved it to its final location. All just speculation here.

In any case, you can edit your observation and change the place name to whatever you like, or even leave it blank if you choose.

Thank you very much.
I will do like that.
