I have a masters student David Bell who has been DNA-barcoding European
Herbertus for his dissertation project this summer. To evaluate the
status of Herbertus hutchinsiae (H. aduncus subsp. hutchinsiae) in
Europe we really need a recent collection for the two american
subspecies from close to their type localities: 1. Herbertus tenuis from
the Appalachians (North Carolina) and 2. H. aduncus subsp. aduncus from
Alaska/ BC (American north-west). Our feeling is that H. hutchinsiae
should be recognised at specific rank.
We do not need fresh material, preferably specimens collected recently
or less than 2 years old. Can anyone help?
Many thanks, David
