Hi Adolf, I sequenced this particular collection

Results are in https://mushroomobserver.org/sequence/show_sequence/2164 and have been added to Genbank. I plan to check some additional gene regions this afternoon.

Alan, you sequenced the name,

but (at least as I understand it) not this particular collection, i.e., MO 301448. Your comment is misplaced here; you should have put it to the Name page of Psilocybe quebecensis. But I am not a mycologist and have some problems with Mushroom Observer Rules Of Naming.

Not my collection

But I did sequence it. I also sequenced one from Mexico, and the type sequence of P. quebecensis is in Genbank.

Alan, is this your collection that you sequenced?

Probably not, if your collection is from Mexico. Sorry, I am stupid and I don’t understand to your arguments.
