I am having an unexpected response from the extendedFindNearby whilst querying the API for comune (ADM3) data in Italy - I hope this is the right place to ask.

I am interested in a point near Piana del Calcinone, which is in the Bioglio comune. This is clear from the polygon of Bioglio, and visible in the hierarchy on the web view (http://www.geonames.org/7932301/quittengo.html).

findNearby will return Piana del Calcinone as expected (http://api.geonames.org/findNearby?lat=45.69023&lng=8.05401&username=redacted).

but extendedFindNearby gives the wrong ADM3 response (http://api.geonames.org/extendedFindNearby?lat=45.69023&lng=8.05401&username=redacted) and screenshot attached.

What is causing this discrepancy, and is there a way to get the expected answer?
