    Michаel Frаnkis commented on "EOL Curators":

    Can something be done to improve the search result suggestions? At the moment they are, and have been for a very long time, absolutely awful, turning up all the least probable results as the top suggestions, rather than the most probable which usually do not appear at all.

    As an example, I had to type out as far as "chamaecyparis lawson" before the obvious Chamaecyparis lawsoniana appeared in the search suggestions; it did not appear even with "chamaecyparis lawso". The search suggestions were instead completely cluttered with highly improbable suggestions.

    What would help is if accepted names were given higher hit status than non-accepted names, and generic names given higher hit status than species names, so e.g. a seach for 'pinus' will turn up various Pinus spp., higher than Spinus pinus.

    @F. Peregrinus: These are Barcode of Life BIN clusters. Not sure why NCBI has more than one taxon per BIN. Looks like a mapping problem that has been solved at the source. It should get fixed once we update NCBI.

    Octopoda sp. BOLD:AAA1668 Octopoda;octopuses Are these homonyms, I hope so! I couldn't tell because "Octopoda sp. BOLD:AAA1668"didn't have an article!

    @Kento Furui: We are currently dealing with the aftermath of migrating EOL data and software to new servers. This issue may be related to the migration. It will take us a couple of weeks to get things back to normal. Please check back in a little while and let us know if the problem persists.

    Kento Furui commented on "EOL Curators":

    API hierarchy_entry returns error when the result json is too big. hierarchy_entry gives the entire list of descendants of a taxon. When this list of descendants is too large, it becomes error. Is there a way around?

    @Katja Schulz: Thank you! I'll try that API instead. Is pages API getting fixed any time soon?

    Katja Schulz commented on "EOL Curators":

    @Kento Furui: Sorry about that. Not sure why the IUCN status is missing from the pages API. It's still in the TraitBank API, which you can call using page ids, e.g.: http://eol.org/api/traits/324407 gives you the data for the Aye-aye. Look for "dwc:measurementType":{"rdfs:label":{"en":"conservation status"},"@id":"http://rs.tdwg.org/ontology/voc/SPMInfoItems#ConservationStatus"}

    Hi. Please forgive me if this is wrong place to ask. EOL pages API is not returning iucn status. It gives me no data objects for iucn. I have tried it with different taxonIDs. None of them worked. Please help me. Thanks.

    @Hamid Nourashraf: Hi Hamid, we usually have a dump file with all of our name and hierarchy information available. But unfortunately, this service is down right now because we are in the middle of moving our servers to a new location. If you can work with a slightly out of date version, there's one here from February: http://s.si.edu/1DP05dj

    Is it possible to get the name of all species indexed in eol? I have searched in the API page but could not find anything. I have some books ocr-scanned and like to annotate name of species if any
