Apologies for the crossposting. This is passed along from a colleague 
who is looking for institutions with holdings of the Coconut Moth and 
one of its parasites. Please respond to Mark, rather than myself or 
the mailing list.
Dear Colleagues,

I'm compilng a list of institutions that have specimens of Levuana 
iridescens [= irridescens](Lepidoptera: Zygaenidae) and its natural 
enemy Besa (= Ptychomyia) remota. Web searches have not yielded many 

The information I'm interested in compiling is:

1) Institutional name & address of the holding.
2) No. of specimens.
3) Date specimen was collected.
4) Locality of collection
5) Collector's name.

If it is not too much trouble to collect this information and e-mail 
it to me (mark.hoddle at ucr.edu) I'd be very appreciative.

Thanking you in advance for any assistance.
