Dear Leps-L List Server members

I am seeking adult samples of Helicoverpa armigera [Noctuidae], collected and stored dry (ie., not in alcohol).

I'm conducting a program assessing the value of using stable isotope and trace element profiles to trace the origin of artificially transported insects, and are using H. armigera as the model insect.

I am seeking specimens from sites across Australia, Indonesia, a pacific island nation, China, India, an EU country, USA and Japan.  Ideally, I'd like to have the specimens in hand before May 2010, and will be most grateful to receive specimens any time between now and then (realizing its not the ideal window for northern hemisphere collecting).  I'm aimming for 4 moths per centre, but will be happy with what ever number come in.

If you have any samples that you can spare, or know of a colleague who may, please contact me directly: peter.holder at<mailto:peter.holder at>

Many thanks, Peter
