Hi Nikita,

I was also wondering where these are available. I did a little bit of research and found this place to be the cheapest.


The Japanese pins are supposedly better.

If anyone knows a better place for general insect collection and photography supplies, do not hesitate to share the info.I think we should keep this thread as a knowledge base where to buy what.

I have ordered pins from Vermandel (http://www.verman.../index.php) and Entomoravia (linked to by Xespok above). Both offer good service in english and deliver in a week or two.

Vermandel does also sell a reasonable range of other supplies (forceps, micropin blocks = 'polyporus', magnifying glasses etc). Bioquip (http://www.bioqui...) is a U.S.A.-based company. They carry an enormous range of equipment but prices are generally higher than in Europe, even more so after tax + customs.

Thank you Xespok and Kahis. Both links looks very useful.
But the question about Hamburg is still valid too, otherwise it takes for order, delivery ect. a month, I think.

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