> Dear Taxacomers
> I work on the molecular phylogeny of Pimplinae (Hymenoptera,
> Ichneumonidae) whithin the framework of my DEA (the french equivalent of the
> Master of Science). I hope to perform a molecular and morphological combined
> analysis to study evolutionnary patterns of parasitism modalities.
> To perform this analysis, I require some specimens :
> Alcohol preserved specimen :
> Theronia (I have 2 alcohol preserved specimens of T. atalantae)
> Polysphincta (I have 1 Polysphincta boops)
> Poemenia notata (I have 1 specimen)
> Zatypota albicoxa (I have 1 specimen)
> bohemani (I have 1 specimen)
> Zaglyptus varipes (I have 1 specimen)
> Pimpla flavicoxis
> Pimpla aquilonia
> Dried specimens :
> I'm looking for these specimens, but I would be interested in other species
> of Pimplinae.
> Thank you in advance

I got your letter with your problem. I am exploring Ichneumonidae fauna of
Russia, and also I am interested in the questions of systematic and evolution.
Now I compile a list of species of Gelinae (Cryptinae) of Sebezh National Park (Pskov region, north-west of Russia). I imported from Park alcohol preserved material (for the most part males). I need it for my work in morphology of genitalia. I shall start my work on this problem in autumn 2000.
I have got some unidentified specimens of Pimplinae. I would be hepy to help you in your investigations. Soon I will send parcel with insects to my friend.
He reside in Fantane Le Conte (south-west of Franch).He is taxodermist, his name is Alain Barbon. I have any problems with a dispetch of parcel with insects to foreing countries, and so I will send one parcel to Alain. If you need my help I will forward indentified specimens to Alain. You can to conect with each other.
If you are interested, write to me.
All the best!
