At the LepSoc meeting a fellow from Newhall, California gentleman, John
Masters <jhmasters at> said he was taking an exploratory collecting
trip to Guatemala (he felt it was the best country in Central America in
which to collect) and he was looking for folks to accompany him  on a
trip that was, I believe, being sponsored by the Guatemalan government. 
Permits are easy to get and there is no problem exporting specimens
according to Masters.
