We don’t need much of A. brunnescens.

On the other hand, we could use several collections of rubescent material since we don’t yet know a certain-sure way of telling the species apart with the naked eye. That’s why need more eyes working on the problem.

Very best,

Thank you very much for the interest in my observation. I had not been able to save this specimen or else I would happily send it out for herbarium deposit. I come across this fairly often, so I will keep this in mind for the future.

I found this new posting and checked my herbarium records for material of A. brunnescens from Florida. I don’t have any. Hence, this is another species for which dried material from Florida would be very welcome in the herbarium here in Roosevelt, NJ.

The story of brunnescens is different from that of the rubescent taxa in North America. This species does not appear to contain “hidden” or “cryptic” taxa given current knowledge.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
