Spp lists with mixed ranks

Hi,

I'm trying to download a species list comprising genus, species and subspecies for a geographic region. For the latter two it functions fine, but I'm having a particular issue with Taraxacum, when I search for Taraxacum alone it returns results but when included as part of a list it's absent. Is this a known issue?

Hi Beth,

This looks to be a bug - thanks for letting me know.

I'll investigate what's gone wrong, but meanwhile it's possible to work-around the issue by entering 'Taraxacum' separately and also ensuring that you pick the name from the drop-down suggestion list, rather than just typing it.

e.g. the following query appears to work

Check that 'Taraxacum' is included in the list of taxa in the query summary displayed below the form - if it's not then re-enter and pick Taraxacum.
