Description of problem:

Step 1: Standard search for unknown observations using Explore search filter

Step 2: This potter/mason wasp appears. Initially I assumed it hadn’t been grafted properly, but it has.

Step 3: https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/whats-with-this-not-unknown-creature-showing-up-in-the-unknown-search/4092/3 same issue as here, but without the same solution


Here is a url which (currently) brings up just this observation:

I can see it as well.

It may be relevant that it is the first observation of this species, but that doesn’t cause problems the rest of the time.

Found another one, this snail appears in unknown: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/38110412.

Interestingly it’s also the only one observed on iNat re what @kitbeard said

Can you provide a search URL for that one? Not seeing either of these showing up in searches for unknowns after voting/unvoting something in the DQA.


Same here, which makes me think they weren’t indexed properly.

Both are out of unknown now for me
