Hi Akshat,
the offset is the number of records, not the pages. So yes, this is supposed to happen. For the next rpage offset should be increased by your page limit/size

Hi all,
I'm trying to get all the years of occurrence for a specific organism.
I tried pagination and with the limit and offset parameters. For example:


But I noticed that each successive page has duplicate results. For example:
for the scientific name: Aaptos aaptos, I tried limit= 30 and increased the offset parameter as-

offset=0&limit=30 and offset=1&limit=30

The two queries have 29 common results.

Is this supposed to happen or am I doing something wrong?
