Notes From Nature Talk
#incomplete collectors number missing. Also no habitat description
#unclear lable contains two scientific names. Is the second simply a more accurate version of the first?
Also: "Viola X wittrockiana" transcribed as written but seems unusual to me. Typo maybe?
#incomplete Important Information about the location is missing (city). Possibly Metairie La.?
#error species name "purpurescens" should be "purpurascens" according to theplantlist.org
#error location "Killan" should be "Killian"
#error "Bonne carre spillway" corrected to "Bonnet Carré Spillway"
Also, the correct spelling of the Lake is "Lake Ramsay" according to google maps - in case anybody is wondering.
#error according to google maps the name of the river is "Tchefuncte", not " Tchefuncta". See: 30°31'43.9"N 90°10'57.0"W
#incomplete this record is missing important information. Collection date simply states: "May". Record overall sparse
my two cents:
Location: May, Texas; Star Mt Quad.
Habitat: crosstimbers, 1680 - 1700 ft
#illegible managed to transcribe with the help of Gimp but the writing is very hard to read
#error typo in collectors name corrected to "H. R. Wilson"
#error sc. name corrected to "Panicum gymnocarpum"
#error sc. name corrected to "Polypremum procumbens"
Frankly, I think all of Paulette Poches sheets should probably be checked afterwards
#handwriting I'm fairly confident of my transcription but not 100% certain. I feel the endresult of this sheet should be checked
#incomplete Important information about the location is missing. Most probable solution: USA, LA, Tangipahoa, Hammond
#error collectors name most probably a misspelling of "Beville" but transcribed as seen in case it isn't
update: two sources mention Calyptocarpus vialia and its common name "horseherb". Searching for "horseherb" gets you Calyptocarpus vialis.
#error species name 'vialia' does not exist according to theplantlist.org and quick google search. Closest match: "Calyptocarpus vialis"
#error ? species name "virginicus" does not exist / is no longer used according to theplantlist.org. Corrected to "Physostegia virginiana"
#unclear #handwriting #error. sc. name 'Trifollium' corrected to 'Trifolium'. Handwritten correction unclear. Maybe: Trifolium resupinatum
#error according to google maps La Rt 36 does not intersect with Rt 433 but with Rt 434. Transcribed as shown in the image
#error St. Taminy Parish should be St Tammany parish.
#error according to theplantlist.org sc. name doesn't exist. Supported by quick google search. Should probably be: Sphenopholis obtusata
#illegible With some help from Gimp and google I managed a transcription I'm fairly confident of but still...
I agree and transcribed it as such
Also I have to remove 1 point from Mrs Poche's score for damaging perfectly good volunteers with her handwriting 😉
#handwriting. after 1 hour of research I have to give up. best guess for 3rd entry in list of associates is "starbush woods"
#handwriting collector number could be read as "265" or "2205"
#date mmddyy convention would dictate 7th of november 1992. Plant and location make ddmmyy format seem more likely
#handwriting last entry of associated plants is hard to read. My guess is "Alligator Weed". Transcribed it as such
#missing collector number missing
#date given date is ambiguous. Transcirbed as 9th of August 1961 since mmddyy is the most common format
#error location says "Ocklocknee". Quick google search suggestst it should be "Ocklockonee" (extra o). and was transcribed as such.
#error "Calcarous hammock" should be "Calcareous hammock". Supported by a quick google search
#date given date is ambiguous. Transcribed as 8th of May 1967 since the most common format is mmddyy
#incomplete collector number is missing
#unclear Handwritten update only to genus, not to species. Transcribed as "Thelypteris noveboracensis" as found on "theplantlist.org"
#error List of associates mentions Panicum twice. Transcribed as is in case it is intentional
#multiple Label shows two numbers (70311 & 2842). First one transcribed since it presumably corresponds to the "primary" collector.
possible error: lable states name as "Juncus diffussimus" (Transcribed as such), but Google results strongly favor "Juncus diffusissimus".
#incomplete lacks all information regarding location and habitat/description. Collector unclear Only unambiguous part transcribed (sc. name)
according to google maps the full name of the road should be "S-32-279". I transcribed as S 279 both times regardless
#unclear ; "2 279" should probably be "S 279", referring to the same road later in the description
#date since the year is ony shown as the last two digits I can't be absolutely certain. I selected 1912
#incomplete It seems to me that the first label has been cut at its top edge. It still contains all of the 'standard' information though.
