and he agrees that the 5’ motif of nrLSU is clear; however, he jueges that the rest is mostly noise. We will not have anything to post in GenBank for this critter.

Very best,

look at the raw data again with the many eyes of a spider. Very interesting thought.

nrLSU derived from section Vaginatae. It will be necessary to take a day to compare all these NSW Vaginatae with A. E. Wood’s species.

Very best,

I can see the very end of the “proposed fungal barcode” in a damaged read. This is not one of the “TCT…” species. So that’s a little more information that is useful.

We have recieved this material, and accessioned it to Rod’s herbarium.

Dried Specimen
