The specimen is drying at the moment, I’ll try to send it out to you as soon as possible, I had trouble at the post office last time I attempted to send a package but I’ll try again.

Would like to see the exsiccatum…

Michael,

I’d very much like to review the exsiccatum that goes with these picx.

Very best,

Rod
