Dear Paul and Harold.
I have a result from the Species Identification Task Force. All I know is that it was awarded in Philadelphia in February of 2008. I have no award number. I don’t even know what center, so if I am sending this to the wrong center chair, please excuse me, and suggest who I should send it to.

Dracula venefica, Award number xxxxcccc , has been confirmed to be Dracula venefica by SITF, Sept 2009, with assistance from Gary Meyer. Dracula venefica is currently considered to be a spontaneous hybrid that occurred in a cultivated collection.

You can now process the award, please include both sentences above in with the award when you send it in.
