I think this is a bug, not the planned behaviour. I looking to add a new genus record, when I did a search for the name, I saw the name used in a different family (an insect, when it is a plant I wanted to add), that of course is fine, names are resued all the time.
I then went to the taxa page itself https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa and entered the name in the search box and clicked the button, leading to this URL:
I then clicked the taxonomic groups = Plants link on the side to further refine. This is the resulting URL ; https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/search?iconic_taxa=47126&q=Monteiroa&utf8=✓
and these are the results:
- why is the insect still showing when I have specifically said I want to filter to plants ?
- why does it say there are 5 results, when clearly 6 things are there ?
