Dear Peter Poot,
Your center is the recipient of the second award confirmation by the Species Identification Task Force. Jay was kind enough to post two of your unresolved awards so that we could practice and work out the bugs. We still have bugs, but we now have two results.
Clowesia thylaciochila 'Jardin Botanique de Montreal; CHM 81 Award # 20074355 has been confirmed to be Clowesia dodsoniana by SITF (July 2008) with assistance by George Carr.
It is now your center’s job to decide how you want to handle this information. There already is a CHM for this species in AQ.
Please feel free to ask questions of me or Jay or anyone on the Task Force.
