Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.): I can upload a observation just fine but when I try to load up what kind of species, or as close as a guess as I or the AI can give me, the app completely crashes. It’s gotten to the point where my phone keeps asking me to put the app into deep sleep so it stops crashing.

What taxon are you choosing? There’s a bug in the current release that causes a crash for widespread taxa. A potential fix is in the latest beta release.

It’s whenever I try to do a widespread one yeah, like when I was uploading a bee. I didn’t know what species it exactly was so I was trying to just put “bees” and it kept crashing on me, but adding a skipper butterfly did work fine since I guess it was a exact species?
