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

I found an adult one of these napthalene smelling ones previously, which I think I sent you. It was MO# 66247. If not, I’m sure I’ll come across another one day. This little giant baby is drying away happily. So stinky!

I shall go and get it. I hated the thought of leaving it behind. Will take the dehydrator back to Sydney with me to make sure it gets all the hours it needs.

If it is throughly dried, etc., we may be able to get DNA.

If we’ve received it previously that may be of some help. If we have not received it previously, it may help in the future.

It’s always worth a try.

Very best,


Very slow growing…

Not sure it will grow in time before I leave. It looks the same today, just a bit bigger. I can collect it but am not sure it would be of any use so young?

“Curioser and curiouser,” said Alice.
