I'm sorry I didn't see your comment earlier. When I made my entry, I checked the box to be notified if I had comments, but for some time now I haven't received the notifications even though I checked the box for it.
For this reason, already before, after making an entry, the following days I frequently visited the page to check if there had been any response to my entry. But by the time he made his comment several days had passed and I had stopped going in to check for comments.
At that time, I know that I came to collect the insect in case it was necessary to obtain any detail about it that could be significant for identification, or for its possible sending to a specialist. But over time the insect will have lost or moldy, I suppose.
I am sorry.

Regards, Jose Marin

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
