[Taxacom] Illumina seqeuncing

I’m considering Illumina sequences, but I’m not sure if small specimens (1-2mm) stored in alcohol are appropriate for this sequencing method.  Does anyone have experience with attaining genome sequence data from small arthropod specimens collected in 95% ethanol? These specimens will be freshly collected and stored at -10degC short term. I’m hoping to avoid having to collect them ‘dry’.
