Collections with filters using observations fields do not show the correct species totals.

(in both cases below the species total is for the default search area i.e. "southern Africa")

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?field:Obsolete:%20do%20not%20use%20!%20%20replace%20with%20Habitat%20(s%20Afr)

This collection has 

120
OBSERVATIONS
24,217
SPECIES
50
IDENTIFIERS
5
OBSERVERS






or
   
9,262
OBSERVATIONS
24,217
SPECIES
184
IDENTIFIERS
8
OBSERVERS

What happens when you export the filtered obs? Does the CSV come out with a correct spp count?

The csv contains observations: it does not do species counts.  These species counts are impossible: how can 120 observations yield 22217 species?

I’m in NZ, so on a different regional setting. When I follow that link, my url becomes:

 

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?field:Obsolete:%20do%20not%20use%20!%20%20replace%20with%20Habitat%20(s%20Afr)

 

same as yours. It shows 0 obs and 0 species with NZ at centre. Then when I uncheck the New Zealand from the left hand side of that bar that shows the totals, my url changes to:

 

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?place_id=any

 

and my totals get out of whack similar to what yours have done.

 

Could it be the use of a colon within the field name that you are filtering to?

 

cheers

Yes, when using observation fields in the filters, the url summaries of them often omit the fields.  Another bug!
