Nice images.
I hear these things can fly all the way to Germany ;-)

 
Thanks Jim
Flying to Germany? Ah, yes ... I hope to figure out how they do that :-)

 
I collected Dorcatoma larvae last week.
I'll send matures and a vial of larvae to Boris for his studies.

 
Cool
I saw the larvae but ignored them (didn't know they were Dorcatoma at the time). I didn't have preservatives for preserving them anyway, so I'll have to get some for the matures, which I will be sending to Boris. However, since I have upcoming university examinations, I might have to delay sending specimens until I complete my semester and get my hands on some supplies. Here in Guelph, supplies are scarce, or I just haven't found a source yet...

 
Ask a professor
If you can have a vial and some ethyl alcohol to ship specimens to a German researcher. They'll be impressed.
