I am a collector in the UK, with limited specimens from USA, Canada and other areas, so It would be great if anyone on Bugguide could help me out by collecting some insects for me.
Insect specimens are very useful to me for their scientific value (with collection data)and also as subjects for my insect illustrations.
large Asilids (Robber-flies) seem to be very interesting to draw from, so I am particularly interested in any Asilids, especially bee/ wasp mimics.
I am also looking for large Tabanids, interesting Hymenopterans, including large sawflies, and some Coleoptera species.
if anyone is interested in UK specimens, then we could trade?
thanks for any help,
