Data and Images for "Hiding in plain sight: genetic confirmation of putative Louisiana Fatmucket Lampsilis hydiana in Illinois"

Dataset

Description

Dataset associated with "Hiding in plain sight: genetic confirmation of putative Louisiana Fatmucket Lampsilis hydiana in Illinois" as submitted to Freshwater Mollusk Biology and Conservation by Stodola et al. Images are from cataloged specimens from the Illinois Natural History Survey (INHS) Mollusk Collection in Champaign, Illinois that were used for genetic research. File names indicate the species as confirmed in Stodola et al. (i.e., Lampsilis siliquoidea or Lampsilis hydiana) followed by the INHS Mollusk Collection catalog number, followed by the individual specimen number, followed by shell view (interior or exterior). If no specimen number is noted in the file name, there is only one specimen for that catalog number. For example: Lsiliquoidea_46515_1_2_3_exterior.
Images were created by photographing specimens on a metric grid in an OrTech Photo-e-Box Plus with a Nikon D610 single lens reflex camera using a 60mm lens. Post-processing of images (cropping, image rotation, and auto contrast) occurred in Adobe Photoshop and saved as TIFF files using no image compression, interleaved pixel order, and IBM PC Byte Order. One additional partial lot, INHS Mollusk Catalog No. 37059 (shown with both interior and exterior view in one image), is included for reference but was not genetically sequenced. A .csv file contains an index of all specimens photographed.
SPECIES: species confirmed using genetic analyses
GENE: cox1 or nad1 mitochondrial gene
ACCESSION: GenBank accession number
INHS CATALOG NO: Illinois Natural History Survey Mollusk Collection Catalog number
WATERBODY: waterbody where specimen was collected
PUTATIVE SPECIES: species determination based on morphological characters prior to genetic analysis

Phylogenetic sequence data (.nex files) were aligned using BioEdit (Hall, T.A. 1999. BioEdit: a user-friendly biological sequence alignment editor and analysis program for Windows 95/98/NT. Nucleic Acids Symposium Series 41:95-98.). Pertinent methodology for the analysis are contained within the manuscript submittal for Stodola et al. to Freshwater Mollusk Biology and Conservation. In these files, "N" is a standard symbol for an unknown base.
