Thread subject: Diptera.info :: pinning alcohol preserved diptera

Dear Forum,

When pinning alcohol preserved material, eg from malaise traps, I notice that the wings often become wrinkled. Does it help if I transfer them to 30% EtOH or plain water first? I will experiment a bit, but maybe some of you have good advice?
