Your sequence it needs some more careful editing and maybe a reverse read if it hasn’t been done, but the greater bulk of the trace, including the conserved 5.8S region, is an perfect match to that of my collection.
This is a good data point, as we now have a better idea of this critter’s distribution range — NJ west to IN and south to GA — which is impressive.
