Hello again Josses -
A cautionary note from Don Cameron, not surprising given the level of
scientific expertise at most newspapers...

Sue could you please forward to the JBS list, it rejected me when I tried,
I have spoken with Bud Johnston about these possible rare plants on the
Casino site and Bud made sure to tell me that the newspaper article left out
the word 'tentatively' before the word identified in the article. Based on
the descriptions he provided me I am skeptical that he has found either of
the extirpated species, or Sericocarpus asteroides. He will send me some
specimens after he collects them.

Hey Don, did Bud Johnston get his rare composites confirmed by you or anyone
else with credentials? (See my email to the JBS list.) Or at least
vouchered? Just wondering...
