Description: This record indicates to me that probably all the records with the same locality have failed to be updated:

Here is what happened. I set all literature records with locality = "Alaska" to a georeference point that was the 'center' of Alaska. This point is seen in the specimen linked above.

Later, deciding that this georeferencing was a bad idea (because GBIF and other data aggregators don't report the error associated with lat/longs) I removed the lat/longs and un-georeferenced the specimen. Here is the original now:

note that it lacks lat/longs, as it should.

It seems like GBIF has updated its records from the source but failed to remove the lat/longs of the former record.

Can you fix this? All UAM:Ento and UAMObs:Ento records with the geographic remarks that say "Use for all records when exact location in Alaska is unknown. (This had been set at the geo-center of Alaska 55.96212, -159.35141 +/- 1850 km)" should have their lat/longs REMOVED from GBIF.

Comment: Probably just a caching issue, the occurrence has no georeference as required.
