Since this pair of specimens is shorter and squatter than I am used to seeing…

I would be very interested in seeing if the habit correlates in anyway to a difference in the genes that Dr. Hughes is sequencing at U. Tenn., Knoxville. If you have the opportunity to collect and dry material of this form and color, I’d be very interested in seeing it.

Thanks for your post.

Very best,
