I'm not involved in this, so you'll pardon me if I kibitz, but I would
think that - logistically - it would be better if the first person to
remove flies sent the remainder on to the next person, and so on, rather
than shipping them back and forth to Spain (I presume, from the taxa
listed, that some of the persons involved are in the USA). Send them around
to the European workers first, then over to the US, and let them circulate
that way, to avoid international mailing as much as possible. I'd suspect
that if you specified the sequence of shipping (from A to B to C...) in
advance, that all would agree. A lot easier and faster if there's some
