Platform: Website & download
I’ve been downloading records of observations I’ve reviewed and some of the numbers from the download are disagreeing with the numbers showing up on iNat using this URL structure for various species.
For Painted Lady on the download I see the iconic_taxon_name is usually Insecta but it’s showing up differently for two observations:
• For this observation the iconic_taxon_name is Animalia
• For this observation the iconic_taxon_name is Plantae
I can’t tell what the iconic_taxon_name is when looking at the observation on the website.
It appears that both observations have a different iconic_taxon_name because of the first ID given. For both observations the initial ID has been withdrawn.
Is this a known bug? I think the discrepancy of 1 that I’m seeing is due to the Plantae observation but I can’t confirm this.
This is from the Excel file I’m using for the downloaded data:
