Transcription Notes:
(Antelope-West) We are about the only folks who record the month first. I think it is usual for these collection dates to be dd-mm-yyyy. Also, I noticed that someone transcribed the altitude as 30,026 feet. If that's the case, we should notify Sylvia and Meghan because that's about a thousand feet higher than Mt. Everest's summit and it's a record for a growing plant. I'm pretty sure that 30026 is the collector number. Finally, per Meghan, the protocol for no USNH number is to enter "none stated" into the box (without the quotes) * does not have a USNH number (unless it's hiding somewhere?) agreed, couldn't find * date could be March 10 or Oct 03 I think 1969-03-10 is accurate. removed brackets from collector number
