Hi, Everyone,

Charlie and a botanist friend, Willie Tang, have just published a paper on weevils that feed on and pollinate New World cycad cones.  He started it in about 2000 and does not expect all curators or collection managers and possibly even addresses will be the same as then.  So if your museum is listed, please send the person and address to which specimens should be sent.
