When I try to create a ContourPlot of a continuous conditional function, Mathematica leaves a "seam" in between the two regions demarcated by the conditional. How do I fill this seam?

fn[x_, y_] := If[x < 2, y/x^2, y/(2 x)]
ContourPlot[fn[x, y], {x, 1.5, 2.5}, {y, 0, 2}]

enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ @kglr, that seems to solve the problem. Feel free to write up an answer to my trivial question and I'll mark it answered. $\endgroup$

Adding the option Exclusions -> None fixes the issue:

 ContourPlot[fn[x, y], {x, 1.5, 2.5}, {y, 0, 2}, Exclusions -> None]
