Onychophora specimens

Thu May 5 09:54:25 CDT 1994

I am a PhD student working on the systematics of the Peripatopsidae
(Onychophora) otherwise known as velvet worms or peripatus. I have
been trying to track down specimens (preserved) of Typhloperipatus
williamsoni, Mesoperipatus tholloni and Paropisthopatus umbrinus to
include in my study, but not having much luck. If anyone has some
specimens or could let me know where I might be able to borrow some,
I would be very grateful.

I particularly need males of these species.

Many thanks,
