Based on chemical features: We have good genetic evidence that the former “sp-L-WA01” is the same species as “sp-L-CO01” and we have merged our webpages on WAO under the latter name. – ret

You should be able to see it in a few days. The accession no. is KX845301.

Thanks again.

Very best,


That’s even better.

Actually, this species appears to be distinct from everything that I’ve worked up so far.

That’s cool, too. My thanks are all still due you. :)

It shares a lot of its “proposed barcode” with the Colorado species, but there are significant differences; so I have to create a new temporary code for this one. We’ll see how long it lasts.

I’m not going to post any more temporary codes today. Let my brain gel over night.

Very best,


Exciting result…

You are very welcome, Rod. Thank you for the follow up information. NAMA has redrawn their regional map and transferred my area to the Rocky Mountains from the PNW, and your information appears to back that up. In reality probably a mix of both plus a little uniqueness of its own.

As for using the image, be my guest.

Thanks, Drew. I would not have expected this one.

Or, rather, I wouldn’t have expected it before today’s arrival of another set of gene sequences with a lot of connections between the mountainous southwest and the Pacific Northwest. So much to learn.

Thanks, again, for the collections that you’ve sent to educate me.

I’d like to use the image from this observation if you don’t mind…here:

Even if it is a hot spot here, sightings are few and far between. It always makes my day when I find them.

If you are willing to send some of this material, we’d also like to examine it and arrange for DNA sequencing. It really seems tha that the hot spot for Limacella in North America might be your home area. Not only are a number of names based on collections made between SF and U.S./Canada line; but it seems that there are also a number of undescribed taxa in the same region.

Very best,
