              Dear Jacques,
 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!
