was one from Victoria, Gordon Head, Tyndall Ave,
The supporting specimen of the Tyndall Ave. collection is this one:
Herbarium Specimen: UBC F31457
See also our MO Observation # 116796 that was found by Shannon Berch and we might have had displaced that collection:
Would you be interested in checking our 2004 Tyndall Ave collection?

…that’s a good question for the Admin, re MO protocols.

Based on the preliminary ID, you may have the northernmost record for A. californicus, and probably the first reported Canadian collection. The herbarium at UBC might want to accession it/them.

Protocol says to keep separate collections made on different days from the same spot. Up to you whether you want to post photos of dried material — if in a herbarium, that’s protocol.

This observation has one or more specimen records. If a specimen has been destroyed, please delete the specimen record by returning to the observation, clicking the specimen link and deleting from there.
Does it mean that we should throw out our specimens? O&A

We will add more photos (unfortunately only of the dry specimens) and the label data. Oluna & Adolf

I can accept that ID as best option.
