Urtica dioica (intermediate between subsp.)

by Geoffrey Hall » Fri Sep 16, 2016 11:34 am

After importing all the records from 2000 into my MapMate database (except those I've uploaded), I've discovered 288 records with the taxon name Urtica dioica (intermediate between subsp.) (MapMate code 2126.3), all of which have a BSBI DDb reference. However, when I search the DDb this taxon (as I've written it), does not appear in the drop-down list, although there is a similar one, which yields one record. I've checked some of the records that have the intermediate taxon name in my database against those in the DDb and have found that they are assigned to Urtica dioica. I need to assign all the records in my database to Urtica dioica, so do I need to change the DDb records and do a sync from the DDb, or is it a MapMate problem? Does anyone have any idea what has happened and how to sort it out?

Hi Geoffrey,

Thanks for reporting this problem. There was a mistake in the mapping between MapMate taxon codes and DDb taxa.

I've corrected the problem with the Urtica intermediate, but am still investigating whether there could be other similar mistakes. Once that's done you could regenerate an export of DDb records (resend the current version of the records that have been sent to your MapMate). To do that, from the DDb website, click on 'Search History' then click the 'MapMate' tab of that page. Click on the 'Regenerate a mapmate export' link and follow the instructions. Please don't do this until I've checked some other MapMate problems, I'll follow up this post once that's done (later today).
