Hello everybody,
could anybody recommend a method for transporting entire malaise-trap catches (many individuals) in an aeroplane? I am afraid they will be physically damaged (air bubbles!, shaking in transport, etc).
They are needed for morphological, as well as molecular (DNA) analysis. The insects are in 90% ethanol, and they should remain in that concentration.

If anybody has experience in that matter, I would be very happy to hear about it. Any idea is welcome :-)

Thanks a lot,
Thomas

@beateSenf you can check the coincident threads with your species and try to write to whom identified them

Hallo, I have a question. Are there any hidden rules in this forum? Do you have to upload spectacular flies to get answers? As soon as the inquiries slide to page two or further, they rest gently

No idea what happened but it is corrected
