The same thought struck me, but I did not dare go further into the possibilities.

I find this observation interesting.

It is dated 1/23/2013 and the MO number is 123232.

Just struck me this morning while I was accessioning the material in the herbarium. The accession number did not cooperate with the pattern: RET 529-9. So that is the end of the coincidences.

I will message you for your mailing information, Rod. There were two of these growing next to each other, one younger and then this older one pictured. Neither had an annulus. They were growing between a planted row of ~10-15 year old Pinus and a large pond with no other trees around. I did not photograph the habitat.

Thanks for pointing me to this one, David.

I would be interested in a dried specimen, Josh.

When I’ve gone looking for A. albocreata, it’s been in Hemlock (Tsuga canadensis)-hardwood forests in the northeast. So it would be good to take a look at this one.


If this is an example of…

a truly ringless panther, then the only such species I know is A. albocreata, which is believed to occur only in northeastern NA.
