Observation 209930: Tetrapyrgos E. Horak
When: 2014-01-21

Notes: One of a few contenders for neotypification of the genus Tetrapyrgos (assuming this and/or one of its sister collections turn out to be T. atrocyanea, the type species). The original type material, collected in the same national park by Metrod in 1949, is in poor condition and has not yielded good DNA. Neotypification by way of one of these recent collections would greatly improve our ability to circumscribe the genus.

Habitat: humid rainforest, 1062m-1150m

Substrate: on leaves and stems of Cryptocarya, Vernonia, Cyanthea, Justicia, and Cephalostchium viguieri.

Collectors: D. Newman, J. Shay, E. Randrianjohany, R. Letsara, P. Rasabo

Collection #: JES143

More notes, microscopy and molecular data forthcoming

It will be interesting to see what you find out about this species, it certainly looks identical to our versions in the NE
