Description: Dear GBIFS,
In the, on search occurrences, when I try to define Fungi as criteria in the Scientific Name, I cannot do it because it does not appears in the list to be selected (see the screenshot). It means that I cannot do, for example, a search of all the occurrences of this kingdom for a country, through the Occurrences search.
Best regards

[] Fungi is in the response, it is just so far down the list of suggestions that it is not printed to screen.
With the current implementation the users do not have an option to search for Fungi (unless they come from the species page).

It seems reasonable to expect it to be the top result. I know that we can use the rank parameter, but for free text search that isn't a good option i would think. Is this an issue with the suggest api or with how we use it in the portal?

Comment: Yes, it is an issue with the suggest API. [] do you know about the ranking in there?

Comment: This has been fixed in a rewritten species search/suggest index, available in our dev environment now (see screenshot). To be deployed to production soon.
