Glassberg is quite correct.

         Hopefully, I have just one thing to say in this go 'round.

         I will admit that collectors probably can be a threat to a species 
when it is confined to a small area with specialized foodplants, etc.  But 
*why* do most species reach this point?  Because little is done about the 
habitat destruction, development, etc. which ultimately *confines* the 
species to one small area.  Once the thing becomes "endangered" then the 
collectors get the brunt of the blame.

         That's all.
