We have recieved this material and accessioned it to Rod’s Herbarium. We have scheduled it for DNA sequencing.

Thanks, again.

What you say makes sense, especially since you put forward amerifulva as a possible ID.


First and second photos…

emphasize red, and the third yellow. I would say that the natural color was not as red as 1 or 2, but more red than 3. Hope it’s possible to make sense of this description.

I do recall the prominence of the red on the discs.

I’m guessing that the color in the third shot is closest “to nature.”

Am I close?

As we discussed previously, I’m very interested in the Vaginatae you find this year.

Very best,
