After a week’s work on a large shipment of DNA sequences. I’m convinced that this is Limacella glischra. Thanks very much.

Go here and see your the impact of the contributions you and others on MO have made to this particular piece of research:

I’m now able to get sequences for limacellas. So if you run into this lady again, I’d be delighted to have some dried material


Nice Stephen
