Dear colleagues,

we are carrying out a DNA sequencing study on members of the tribe
Colletieae (Rhamnaceae); unfortunately, up to now we have failed to
get adequate material of Discaria pubescens, a shrub indigenous to
Southeastern Australia. As usual for this type of studies we just
need a few leaves and/or green twigs, taken either from a living
specimen (sent as fresh material or silicagel-dried) or from a not-too-old
herbarium voucher (up to ten years old). Suggestions about possible sources
(botanical gardens, herbaria where recent collections are to be expected,
personal contacts) would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
