The “B” collection has had sequences derived for the combined nrITS and nrLSU

The nrLSU sequence is the one shared by the species placed in series Crassiputamen. This means that, according to my current ideas about the group, I should be able to separate the taxa by geography, morphology, and nrITS sequences…once I notice that the nrLSU is a match to the sequence that the species in the group share.

I am debating over several points as more data accumulates:

1. Have I completely characterized the group that shares the nrLSU sequence?

2. Is there variation in the nrITS sequences that I have not taken into account?

I am very comfortable segregating the present collection from sp-N68, sp-S14 and crassiputamen. Hence, if the present approach is functional, this would be sp-N66. We do get a highest percentage BLAST match for sp-N66.

I have to rush out of the house at this point.

Thanks for the materiial, as always.

Very best,

Why not call them by the MO number, but add “A” to one of them and “B” to the …

…other. Then package them in separate baggies?

I’ll need something like that to remind me of these comments when they arrive in Roosevelt.

Very best,

Yeah, It was a proximity thing. I just felt it was natural they went together – the mature one was about 30" away from the “teens”.
Looking at them now, with some cool hindsight and your critical eye, I’d probably say you’re right. the hue of the mature one seems significantly different enough to merit a change of heart on it.

I can break them up.

The natural light picture look like two different species.

Can you tell me more about this collection?

Very best,
