Thanks Dimiano & Scott for spotting this!

It is indeed a bug in the species search that no stable ordering is guaranteed when no query string is used.
I have fixed this in the master branch now and will deploy it to production in the next hours.

Hi all,

Dimiano (in CC) has identified a potential problem with the species API. see https://github.com/ropensci/rgbif/issues/299 In particular the /species/search route. The gist is that we think there's duplicates returned when paging through that route for a given search.

This comment https://github.com/ropensci/rgbif/issues/299#issuecomment-378775164  has curl based examples so you can replicate.

Is it a possible GBIF problem, or are we doing something wrong?

Thanks, Scott
