Wrong country for "similar species"?

Why do I get “Other species commonly misidentified as this species in United States” for a plant that is only found in Europe?

You have United States set as a place for search, look at the top right corner.


The Similar Species tab shows species which have incorrectly been identified as this one.

This simply means that people for observations in the US have chosen this species, likely driven by the computer vision, but not 100% guaranteed to be this.

The list will change based on if you have a geography filter applied, but the concept behind the list is universal.

The list there is entirely automated based on misidentifications.

So this is actually not a bug, it is the designed behaviour and results.
