I know these things are hard to lug around and hard to dry. If you could send me a narrow pie-slice from a mature Missouri polypyramis with a good documenting photo someday, I’d really appreciate it. On the new website, we’re trying to fill in the representation of states (if not counties within states) with references to herbarium specimens confirmed as a given species. This is overwhelmingly large as a single task, but we should do this at least for easily recognized species…, which I once called the “Butterflies of the Soil.”
