This is NOT a priority, but when you have a minute, could you get together these two samples:
– vial 3323 (10 Xyleborus glabratus).
– vial 7459 (1 male of X. glabratus)
Make sure these are the only specimens in there (if not, separate them) and send them to Shaun Bennett in New Zealand. Here is his email:
Thank you, and Paul, so much for your help.
Some specimens for our two laboratory reference collections will be greatly received.
Courier is best – our FedEx account number is 2373 4453 7
How do you plant to send the specimens – dry or wet? Our importation requirements mean the specimens are best sent in a small amount of ethanol, or ethanol soaked cotton wool/tissue – makes coming through our own Ministry inspectors straight forward.
Courier address is:
Shaun J. Bennett
Plant Health & Environment Laboratory
Ministry for Primary Industries
231 Morrin Road, St Johns, Auckland 1072
Let me know if you need any more info. Appreciate if you could let me know when they are on their way.
After that, please record the samples as loaned to Shaun Bennett.
