Lecturing by the river, our primary collection site. It is lined with Alnus acuminatus, whose distribution snakes through western and central Bolivia and is host to fungi not found anywhere else in the country.

Yes.

Your knowledge of Alpaca odor intrigues me,

but it also probably not terribly necessary given the larger anatomical features which more readily distinguish Alpacas from similar camelids without having to sniff them. It also has nothing to do with fungi. Do you mean Alpova? That would make more sense. If so, this had no odor, which is consistent with the description of A. austroalnicola

Alpacas often have distinctive aromas.
