Dear Leps-L Listers

This is a re-newed requested.  I am now desperately seeking adult samples of Helicoverpa spp. [Noctuidae], from Indonesia, any pacific island nation, China, India, any EU country, USA and Japan.

I'm conducting a program assessing the value of using isotopes and trace element profiles to trace the origin of artificially transported insects, and are using H. armigera as the model insect.  Am now accepting any Helicoverpa species.

I'm aiming for only 4 moths per centre, but will be happy with what ever number come in.
Ideally collected and stored dry (ie., not in alcohol).  Samples do not need to be neatly pinned - any degree of worn condition is fine.

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

Many thanks, Peter
ps.  Huge thanks to those who have already supplied material - results looking very promising, see long link below
