This material has been received and accessioned to Rod’s herbarium. We have also scheduled it for DNA sequencing.

I’ve recently had a note about species that are called “vaginata”…

on the west coast of the U.S. I don’t think that even Europeans have the grounds to call anything A. vaginata because there is no clear species concept expressed in detail in modern terms.

That aside, I would like to understand if the name is used consistently in west coast states and, if so, applying to what.

How did you decide to use the name in this case?

Very best,
