I am ready to ship two spread butterfly specimens that will be the holotype
and "allotype" for a new species.   I am using my regular method of using a
Schmitt box with a foam pinning surface  packed inside another well padded
large box.  This is going from South Carolina to Virginia (Washington, DC
area).  Has anyone done this recently  -- especially with foam pinning
surface?   I am concerned about  possible heat from irradiation affecting
the foam?   Other concerns?  Advise (through group is fine)
