    I wonder if tissue culture might allow development of Daphne bholua ‘Jacqueline Postill’ that would be free of any virus? While most nurseries/garden centres want plants easy to sell, some might have the ability to market this Daphne on its merits for colour a few feet back from the front of the garden.

    Thanks for adding that additional information regarding the genus Gomphus. I wasn’t aware that the status of the genus had shifted that dramatically.

    It was Dr. Homola’s determination, no G. floccusus in the Western US, which leads me to suggest G. bonarii for this specimen. Dr. Homola was Professor of Mycology at the University of Maine before his death.

    Thanks, Fran. Giachini’s dissertation suggests lumping it back in (see the Gomphus key). I won’t change the name (for now), but it is definitely important for anyone researching the group to be aware of the species history.
