Description: The Brazilian Flora dataset has some problems.

It looks like every link shown in the "Overview" section for each taxon is broken, e.g. for to a 404. I'm guessing that the site has been reorganised since these links were stored in the database.

The values for some standard fields are in Portuguese, and hence aren't recognised. For example, 63,932 have nomenclatural status "unknown", 48,401 have taxonomic status unknown

This is likely because the source has values such as "NOME_ACEITO" for the field "DWC:TAXONOMICSTATUS"]]>

This is strange, I just indexed some last week and the few links I tested were fine then. I also updated our parsers adding the missing portuguese status & rank values:

This is a link of a currently working species:

Using this format the link works:
The one from the dwca does not:

Rod, I have reindexed the flora and most parsing problems have vanished:

The vernacular name ones are also bad code which I just fixed but havent deployed yet

Hi Markus,

Hmmm, but the stats page shows massive failure to match the backbone ?!

Yes, sth wrong in our indexing code:
No idea yet what that is ... there were 17000 names or so previously genuinely not found in our backbone
