I am primarily a scarab worker, but have several "mistress groups" and am beginning systematic work on some histerid genera. I am interested in "entomological alchemy" exchanges for especially bulk, unmounted histerids, especially from FIT and pitfall samples. In return I can provide bulk or pinned specimens of your groups from many places, especially from the SW US.
