conopid specimens wanted

Does anyone have any UK Conopid specimens, stored in ethanol or frozen, that I could use for genetic studies as part of my PhD?

the data generated would be extremely valuable for Conopid conservation and biodiversity research.

Re: conopid specimens wanted

Rachel, I have a Thecophora caught a few days ago in the freezer currently.  What conc. alcohol would you like it in? Getting a frozen one to you without defrosting would seem difficult.  May have some older (4-5yrs) conopid specimens in alcohol, but the concentration may not be reliable and only approx 70% by now -any use?.
