A strain that was originally collected in Taman Negara, Malaysia and then domesticated. A relatively new strain that comes from hot, humid regions. A great addition to your spore library!
The purpose of this review is for the Lead Mycologist to re-examine the Tamana Negara stock for proper spore counts. Our current mycology project is to compare spore characteristics and genomes between the famed McKennaii and the seldom-seen Taman Negara. We had some troubles getting the McKennaii slides prepped for microscopy. It took about a week but 7 out of 9 of our slides were successful so far and are undergoing what may be a slow, tedious project development cycle. We hope to one day realize the fruit of our exhaustive research when it comes to peer review of our findings. That is highly unlikely to happen with the Taman Negrara as it was a disaster. We were simply unable to establish a single viable slide. We are talking about ZERO out of 9 slides and all our slides were autoclaved at the same time and it could be a systemic problem with this particular (new) offering.
