BRYONET: [BRYONET] Request for Calyptrochaeta (=Eriopus)


Dear all,

I am a PhD student at Duke University under Professor Shaw's supervision.
My thesis project focuses on the genus *Calyptrochaeta* Desv., formerly
known as *Eriopus* (Brid.) Brid. (nom. illeg.)
I am preparing a monograph on this genus and I need recent (if possible up
to 10 years old) *Calyptrochaeta* collections that I could sample for
DNA (I have a fair number of herbarium loans but most specimens are
rather old).
Please, let me know if you would be willing to provide duplicates and/or
lend or exchange specimens. We'll be paying for shipment.
Contact me at <>.

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,

Lisa Pokorny

P.S. Please, abstain from sending materials of *C. apiculata* and *C.
asplenioides*. I have plenty, thank you.


Please forgive the loss of non-English characters below. We will be
using better software soon. Janice
