In the countryinfo textfiles there's a geonameid that doesn't exist in the geonames table for the country called 'Serbia and Montenegro'.
After some searching I found the entry in the geonames table. It's called 'Savezna Republika Jugoslavija' with geonameid 6698755.

Could anyone confirm that 'Serbia and Montenegro' is called 'Savezna Republika Jugoslavija' these days? The record was last modified on 1-3-2009.

'Serbia and Montenegro' no longer exists. In the countryinfo it is still included as a reference.
The record with id 6698755 got into the database with a recent update from an external datasource (nga). I have deleted this record.

Thanks for having reported this error.

Seems like Serbia and Montenegro is back in the exports. Marc, can you look into it again please?

Do you mean this feature: http://www.geonames.org/8505033/serbia-and-montenegro.html

In the mean time a feature code for historical countries has been introduced.

But is there a way how we can distinguish historical countries from the normal ones in countryInfo.txt? I know that previously those didn't have identifier.

Hi Pavel

This is true, in the countryInfo.txt it is only visisble as it is at the end of the file. Adding the feature code would probably be a good idea, when we add it as a new column at the end of the line it hopefully does not create too many problems.

Best Regards
