Well, Iain.  Don't sweat it!.  If wilsoniana is anything like wilsonii,  or 
schrenkii--I can get it from McClure and Zimmerman in the U.S.  I don't have 
to have it.    But thanks.  At this point, I'm not at all sure what the hell 
I had.  When I had it it did not increase.. In any case I can buy it from 
McC & Z or something much like it.    CHeers, Adam
