Dear Taxacomers,
	Does anyone know of a supplier of EPDM stoppers for insect specimen  
vials? West Pharmaceuticals, our previous supplier, stopped making  
them. I know that some formulations of EPDM melt spontaneously, but  
we have had much success with them and would like to continue using  
them. If we can't find a supplier, what other kinds of stoppers have  
you used and what would you recommend? For various reasons, using  
screw-cap vials or a vials-in-jar system are not practical. Thanks  
much for any advice you might have.

Cheerio, colin
