Description: Dear,
I'm trying to visualize a map with all georreferenced records for Plantae. But I'm getting a error message that the taxon "plantae" was replaced bz "Plantae". But any of the searchers allows me to view results as a map. Even if I restrict my search for magnoliophyte

Thank you Fernanda

The easiest way to see a map of Plantae is on the taxon page:

If you need to add more filters you can do it on the occurrence search page:

There is an issue with the scientific name filter which you are observing - if you apply the filter too quickly, it does not work which is a bug.  If you wait after typing "Plantae" it will autocomplete and give a selection of options.  If you wait for that and make a selection, it will work.

doesn't seem to be an autocomplete issue to me. The usage of a bounding box makes the map view fail

select any location bounding box

apply -> view as map -> failure

likewise removing the geometry param from the refered failed location works:

this solves the issue with showing an empty map when the param TAXON_KEY is a string (e.g. 'plantae') as the key will be used instead. But the issue reported above with map search and geometry params is still there.
