Hi. I've been asked by Dave Hawks (david.hawks at and Chris Marshall
(cm13 at to post a request for material desperately needed for
DNA sequencing; they are looking for specimens of Nicagus, Lethrus, Acoma,
or Benedictia in ethanol or fresh frozen (last resort: *recently* collected
pinned ones). They are also seeking larvae of Nicagus, or live adults.
Please do not reply to me, but direct responses to them at
