Incomplete results from taxon search #1

When using Atlas taxonomy search to find Symphytum the returned taxon tree appears to fall down (no option is returned). If Symphytum officinale is searched for then the species is not returned but the tree returns any sub taxa that contain officinale on the genus search it appears to fail at Magnoliopsida.


I checked the species names, both genus and bionomial are correct and on the Atlas.

However, if potential relevance, when searching using your taxonomy visualiser the genus entry is returned as Symphytum (indet. Comfrey)

Are the indet. brackets breaking the Gilbert21?

It certainly looks that way from your analysis Ben. I will aim look into it further over the week and update you.

Hi Ben. I've found the source of the problem with this: the Atlas taxonomy for Symphytum goes straight from class to family and skips order. This caught the G21 code (i.e. me!) by surprise.

I can fix that easily enough, but in the course of investigating it, I've realised that the new taxon tree isn't very helpful for selecting higher level taxa. For example if you do a search on any genus (one that works), the results list the genus and, under it, the species, but you can't click on the genus and get it to fill in the name for you. So I'm going to do a bit more work on this yet before releasing a fix.

This is now fixed in release 3.2.1. Also improved some features of the way that matching results are displayed to users.
