This may be related to http://dev.gbif.org/issues/browse/POR-1508 but it looks like “eventDate” is consistently incorrect in every API call I make, e.g. http://api.gbif.org/v1/occurrence/891423484 returns:


when the verbatim date is 2002-04-12

The web version of the record http://www.gbif.org/occurrence/891423484 has the correct date, together with a time (12:00:00 AM) that seems to be based on no evidence at all (it’s always puzzled me why GBIF reports spuriously precise date and time strings on the web page).
