W.E. Clark: "I should know this, but need a microscope"
[Ben, do you still have the specimen, by any chance? =v=]

I'm afraid not
I'll keep a specimen if I find it again.

as a general rule, keeping all kinds of tiny stuff for vouchering is a good idea: the requisite details may be rather subtle. (well, you don't need no stinking lecturing from me...)
great to hear from you, man. missing your fresh output in the beetle section :]

Camera's busted
My flash broke, so macros are nearly impossible for the moment. I'll have a replacement camera soon, but probably too late for this year. I know I need to get some denatured alcohol and vials for some of these things, but I've been procrastinating. I'll try harder next year.

dark signatus? musculus? can't tell... will ask the gurus
