Hi all,

Please, we are today here in France on a holiday (commemorating 8 May 1945),=
 so nobody can answer you from MNHN (except me as you can read ;-).

I am somewhat surprised by the Elizabeth Arias's message, but she can send a=
 message to Loic Matile (lmatile at or Thierry Bourgooin (bourgoin at mnh=, they work both in entomology lab. Maybe the first request was not too=
 much argumented, or did not come from a known lab or else ? Retry, I think=
 there will be a solution.

About photos on the web, we have recently bought a video system for that and=
 it is under testing, so wait some time before we can provide such photograp=

The MNHN collection are open to all, but as Barry said, we have to take some=
=46or the french Post Service, it is good, thank you.

I understand very well the problems for non european countries to study old=
 material stored in european museums, and believe or not, but we do our best=
 to make easier collaborations, sending material and welcoming foreign peopl=
We were in great discussions the two last months to improve the financial=
 support and thus, the use of our collections.

Best regards.
