All herbarium shelves are accessible. There is still lots of junk piled in the herbarium, but the room is about to be fully usable in a post flood form.  That is to say, everything that should be there is there, and everything that should be somewhere else is still there in part.  About 24 hours away is a workable work table and a workable small desk...cross fingers.

We're working on submission of many sequences to GenBank, with particular focus on section Amanita section Amidella.  The genes targeted are nrITS, nrLSU, and rpb2.

Updated techtab: Amanita floridella.
