Looks like it’s a common one in your area if you’ve been finding it in different neighborhoods.

Most of the Lanmaoa observations I’ve made have been within a couple miles of this park but not actually there.

I went with nrLSU rather that TEF-1 for both samples because it’s easier to sequence and because I hadn’t seen a clear advantage in the interspecific resolving power offered by the latter locus for Lanmaoa, though one might argue that more comparative data are needed to draw a definitive conclusion. On paper, however, TEF-1 is superior as a barcode and is more informative phylogenetically.
Any other suspected Lanmaoa observations have come from this specific site?

Different location, same species

I’m eager to find out what this is.

I’ve seen these before!

Same location & species as obs 320039 and obs 320102? The latter and another suspected Lanmaoa sp., obs 294542, have been recently sampled for genetic sequencing.
