has been a temporary repository of data that is being moved to other pages as collections are identified genetically…to a still growing number of temporary codes.

This composite page is


This morning, at the bottom of the brief tab of that page, I added links to all the temporary codes that have been genetically segregated from the group to which the European name A. rubescenns has been applied in North America from the Great Plains eastward and from Canada to Central Mexico.

The count of such taxa is not finalized, we continue to find what are apparently new groupings (possible species) of rubescent taxa in North America; the research moves forward thanks in part to the many MO participants who have shared collections with us.

Thanks to all of you.

Very best,
