Description: I am trying to download occurrence data for a list of 50 species from semi-natural meadows in Norway. But I keep getting an error message, header of email is: "Your download failed" and the page in the portal for this download says: "KILLED - The download request was unsuccessful. Please try it again or contact GBIF Helpdesk.*

I got this download DOI (however, these failed download DOIs do not seem to resolve)

I have tried again with a selection of species names, however some downloads go through and some get this error message.

I tried to lookup the species with the web services API (using the r-package rgbif) and get no match for taxonKeys: 5405976, 8277403, 3137498, 5371873.

Comment: By the way, these data is for a Norwegian researcher, and he would also like to filter these by coordinateUncertaintyInmeter less than 100 meter :-) So again - adding a new search filter for coordinateUncertaintyInMeters would be great!

[~DagEndresen] Regarding these types of requests: Please take a look at Scott Chamberlain's pygbif package for Python:
This software framework allows you to access the GBIF API programatically and easily select multiple species for a user download, as well as adding a coordinate polygons.

Peter Desmet, Stijn Van Hoey and myself have added these new features to the pygbif package last week, and there is going to be more stuff coming soon.
