An additional problem concerning type specimen in european museums
is the restrictive employment strategy of federal and state organs.

Once I tried to look at the termite fossil material collected by
Armbruster at the Randecker Maar/Germany.
The responsible curator was really very helpful and gently, although
his main area are molluscs. But we did succeed in finding only parts
of the material.
The idea with internet photographs is really very nice and I would
appreciate it, but it will make necessary more funds from federal
and state organs.
