Wonderful, suggest metric?
A great photo of a beautifully-prepared specimen. One suggestion: the original editorial guidelines for this site recommend metric measurements for body sizes--those are pretty standard in entomology, too, from what I've seen.

Any chance you could note body lengths, too? That is a standard measurement as well. (I like seeing the wingspan too.)

Again, thanks for your photos of specimens, they are making a great addition to the site.

OK
I will replace the US measurements with metric as much as I can. Thanks for the help!
