CatRemarks:
This specimen was re-discovered in an unlabeled box in the CFDC Collection Room. I do not know wny the specimen number is formatted the way it is. I only assume that the specimen may have been collected around 2001 based on the specimen number, which I do not understand. However, it is a CFDC specimen. Former Curator Mike Waddell is assumed responsible for the format of the accession number, though again, no body knows why. As such, we are unable to determine which site this specimen came from since the accession number if formatted differently with no explanation.
