This material has been received and accessioned to Rod’s herbarium. We have scheduled it for DNA sequencing.
Hello, Ron and Stephen. I checked into Stephen’s collection. You may have a point. I see that I came up with the same Murrillian name in both cases (for lack of anything better). I will see if we can extract DNA from both the collections. Then we have another point of comparison.
I have never seen this; however, I think I have read a description…I think a Murrill species originally described from Florida.
I’ll try to track it down.
