I realize that Brazilian institutions have been receiving loans of museum
specimens from institutions of various countries.  After following the
discussions on new Brazilian laws about potential genetic resources leaving
Brazil, we were reluctant to make any new loans to Brazilian institutions
(particularly of type material) for fear they would not be able to be
returned.  I am curious to know: Has anyone (outside of Brazil) received
loan returns of museum specimens from Brazil in the last several months?
