BRYONET: Request for Lepidoziaceae

Dear Bryonet,
I am a doctoral student at the University of Sydney. I am working on the
phylogenetics of the Lepidoziaceae (Hepaticae) and we have been finding
some very interesting results. We have a very good representation of the
New Zealand and Australian floras but unfortunately representation from
outside our region is limited. I am hoping that some of you might be
able to help.
In particular I would like to be able to include:
- Micropterygium (any species)
- Lepidozia and/or Telaranea species from the Northern
Hemisphere and South America.
In general any South American Lepidoziaceae and any Lepidozia and
Telaranea species from outside Australasia are of interest.
Please contact me (
<> ) if you would be willing to
provide duplicates and/or lend or exchange specimens. For DNA work
recent collections (up to 10 years old) are required.
I look forward to hearing from you (and returning the favour some time).
Thank you very much for any assistance you can provide.
Best wishes,
