Description: scientific name filters expect a nub key via the autocomplete, but you can actually enter name strings too which break the search. This is obviously wrong:

a) the UI should not allow you to select a name not coming from the autocomplete

b) ideally the portal should more gracefully handle URLs like the above, return the filter without the broken part and highlight that this part of the filter is bad and ignored]]>

Yeah, I cannot reproduce this either with Chrome.
But when there are multiple scientific names in the filter they get shown in a single line. Wouldn't it be better to have one name per line? See attached screenshot

Comment: so, we couldn't reproduce it, i'll close this issue, Markus you are free of create a new one related to showing each filter in a single line.

Reopening this issue and rename it. The problem is that the search expects a nub key integer from the autocomplete, but the UI allows to enter real scientific name strings which break the search. Try to quickly enter "abies" into a new scientific name filter and hit return. You'll get this:
