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

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

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