Rod, I’ll send it all to you, but will wait till next week because there’s still a chance we’ll recollect “sp-WA03” as well.

Thanks for your comments.

this is really interesting, Sava. <<<EDITED

I didn’t know that any species of this group occurred in any of the Pacific Coastal states. If you can spare any of this material, I’d really like to examine it.

We are in the midst of a project to try to sort out what could be called the “rhacopus group.” I thought it was restricted to eastern North America. Perhaps not.

Some of the taxa in the group are treated (with varying degrees of completeness) on the WAO web site. Here are a couple of links:

There are more taxa in the group; I think links to other pages can be found (maybe in the technical tab “discussion” data fields for the above).

Very best,
