of the second photograph. Also, considering the geography (Maine), I’d say this is A. jacksonii, but most of the specimens are really zapped by sunlight.

P.S. I’ve decide to take a little vacation from automatic notification by MO. I’m not going anywhere and will go look at MO once in awhile. If you guys think I should see something on MO please email me.
