I am working on revising the endemic Chilean genus -Deromecus- for my PhD
thesis.  Most of the important species were described by Solier and
=46leutiaux and the types are at the Paris Museum.  As a student, I am
somewhat constrained by time and money.  I really need to see some of the
types , but  I have been not able to get them from the Paris museum despite
repeated letters and Faxs.

Does anyone have any suggestions about how  to get materials loaned from the=

Its is really fair for such a large & important collection to keep their
material (Chilean material) so tightly & prevent  progress in systematics
from occuring in a timely fashion?
