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

What concentration alcohol do you need them in, Rachel?  Just caught a couple of what look like Thecophora specimens today - now in the freezer and I could re-freeze one or put in alcohol.   Need to pin the other for determination.
I probably have some old specimens of conopids in alcohol, but the percentage may be only 70% and not very reliable.  Also they have been in this for more than 5 years.  Presume these are not so useful?
