HTTPS & HTTP scan in WAS

I have a WAS scan configured to run against a URL that is available via http(:80) and https(:443). I set the discovery scan to run against https://www.mysite.com (obviously just an example name) and the links crawled shows the whole site first via http then via https, thus repeating every found link.

Any idea why this is happening please ? I understood that it should only crawl the site via the port inherent in the URL (in this case https only) ?

 

Example output from links crawled:

http://www.mysite.com/page1.html

http://www.mysite.com/page2.html

http://www.mysite.com/page3.html

....

https://www.mysite.com/page1.html

https://www.mysite.com/page2.html

https://www.mysite.com/page3.html

....
