Description: Hi,

Did the match species/match endpoint behavior change recently?  It seems that a call like this used to give a single match result for the genus Helianthus, but now gives

synonym: false,
confidence: 100,
note: "Multiple equal matches for Helianthus",
matchType: "NONE"

Seems like behavior has changed to give back this message if no single match found?  Was one of many best matches returned before?  Or am I mistaken and behavior hasn't changed?  I know I can use verbose=true to get alternative matches.

Thanks! Scott Chamberlain

Comment: This was a bad clb content issue due to a manually inserted spieder record some time ago causing the nublookup to load all datasets, not just the GBIF backbone. Fixed
