for your comments. I was excited to find it. On Monday I’ll send this specimen (dried) along with two others you’ve asked for: MO 141053 and MO 142369.



I concur. A beautiful specimen.

Since I described this species, I have almost never seen it again. Your photograph is very, very nice.

Would you be willing to share your dried specimen? I would be much more likely to obtain DNA from it than from my old collections.

Very best,
