BRYONET: Material of Forsstroemia?

BRYONET


Dear bryonetters,

My colleague Sanna Olsson and I are carrying out DNA-based
phylogenetic studies on the moss family Neckeraceae and we are trying
to get as comprehensive a species sampling as possible. To that end I
inquire if some of you are fortunate enough to possess relatively
fresh (from c. 1990 onwards) specimens of some of the following species:

Forsstroemia coronata
F. cryphaeoides
F. indica
F. japonica
F. neckeroides
F. thomsonii
F. tripinnata

We would only need a small amount of a shoot for the analyses, so the
specimens will not be destroyed. I am afraid we are in a bit of a
hurry so if you have such specimens, would it be possible to send them
soon? I will of course verify the identifications for you if you are
not sure which species you have.
Thank you!
Best wishes,
Johannes Enroth
