Does not match TYPE for C.oregonensis, consider C.leucophanes
By: Shannon Adams (Sulcatus)

The type for C.oregonensis is NR_130239.1.

This Genbank accession number – GQ159798 – is only a 96% match to type. With 30 base pairs difference over 671 BP on ITS, this is not C.oregonensis at all.

A matching barcode for C.leucophanes was published by reputable authors but I am not sure if it is a match to your collection as I’d need to see if they confirmed to Type.
