Rod, Although I have had good finds in the last week or so, what I am coming up against is the problems with not only high humidity, but rain at the collection area and when doing the photos. The end results have been difficult to say the least. The drier is wonderful, and has saved 50% of my losses. The obs. you were interested in previously looks good enough to send to you. I will detail the documentation better when posting to make your life easier. Hope to get something away in the next couple of days. I think I may have a specimen for Christian Schwarz that he was interested in observing..I had some mishaps with the first use of the drier, and had trouble keeping track of all the species being dried. (as you know sometimes it is difficult to recognise the dried specimen with the original.) I had some tags dislodged in the drier. (Not Good!)I have redesigned the way I record finds with a tagging system as well as notes. This should allow me more time to document the finds in better detail. Almost impossible to take notes in the pouring rain, and this has led to some short descriptions. Will email when parcel on the way. I think I may have more than one specimen to send to you. Not sure and will have to check the site notes. Chow, kk
