An nrITS sequence for this species has been OK’d for release by GenBank (KX858794). It should be available in a few days.

Very best,

Rod

This taxon falls into a clade with a sequence putatively from the European L. glioderma

but quite distant from the sequeunce supposedly representing the European species in an nrLSU-tree. So far, it appears that nrLSU has sufficient “traction” to appear to support the division of Limacella into its three sections. So I’m going to offer an alternate name in a conservative manner.

It appears that I should create a temporary code for this taxon. I’ll wait until I have accumulated some more mophological data (e.g., measure spores).

In the meantime, the species can be placed in section Limacella as a start.

Very best,

Rod

We have a sequence for this material, Christian. It does not cluster closely with any other material sequenced to date; however, we have days of work ahead of us from recent incoming Limacella sequences.

Very best,

Rod

Thanks to all parties involved.

I received the material several months ago. It is now cataloged with accession number 473-7. I hope to get to look at it soon.

Very best,

I would be very interested in having the opportunity to review the dried material representing this observation.
