Dear ECNler,

Two of my undergraduate students and I are looking for ethanol-preserved (90-95%), DNA-quality specimens of North American Phymata (ambush bugs). Should you be out in the field this summer and an ambush bug comes your way, we would greatly appreciate if you could catch it for us and send it to:

Christiane Weirauch

Department of Entomology

University of California, Riverside

900 University Avenue

Riverside, 92521, CA

 

More on the goals of this project and some Phymata pictures here: http://heteroptera.ucr.edu/index.php/research/reduviidae/reduviidae-reu

Thank you so much in advance, your efforts will be greatly appreciated!

 

Best wishes, Christiane
