The Barcode Blitz- what did we achieve Despite an average age of 30 years,COI sequences were recovered from more than 95% of the specimens 19. The Barcode Blitz- what did we achieve Provided the first continent-wide data set for a megadiverse insect group in Australia within a short period of time (about 90% of named Lepidoptera) Provides a model for inclusion in other initiatives aimed at the high-throughput accumulation of priority data sets.Establishes the great value of existing natural history collections as a basis for fast tracking the development of comprehensive DNA barcode libraries. 20. Despite popular opinion 21.

The Barcode Blitz- Australian benefits </p> <ul><li><ul><li>ANIC barcoding blitz activity is our clearest and most positive example of an accelerated and serious attempt to digitise a significant representative sample of a national collection.</li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>Presenting the results in their fullness (including the capability of this process to highlight the range of undescribed diversity) would be a key element in a case to support a major national digitisation activity </li></ul></li></ul> <p>25. One example of international benefit </p> <ul><li><ul><li>A message from South Africa </li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li> Note that the mitochondrion sequences we obtained from the groundnut leaf miner in South Africa matched 100% with the soybean mothApproaerema simplexella PS1from Australia on the BOLD system, and that is the reason we are interested in the soybean moth in Australia. </li></ul></li></ul> <p>26.
