> Currently, we finished seeing all type specimens, and are now able to identify any specimen of the tribe from there. We are happy if you send us your unidentified specimens or even identified ones which you would like to have checked/ revised.
> Although, South American Sericini are not expected to be such diverse as African or oriental lineages, we expect a couple of new species as well…
> Please, in case you plan to send material, contact us before sending the material. Material should be sent to Museum Koenig Bonn, Germany (c/o D. Ahrens; please find addresses below). Thaynara has a sandwich grant and funding from German Science Foundation to work in Bonn and in Rio.
