We got a pretty good sequence for the “proposed barcode” gene from this material and it was a 99.7% match to DNA from a collection by Yves Lamoureux from Quebec. I think that it is very likely that they represent the same taxon. Thanks for this material. It will help us to understand the range and variation of A. praecox.

Very best,


Thanks Dave,
