Dear all,

after the great help received for the *Temnostoma *project lead by Jirka
Hadrava, I would like to ask you for some help with *Sphaerophoria*.

We are currently studying the genomics of the genus *Sphaerophoria*, and we
would love to receive some specimens from around the 'Holarctic' of the
following five species:

- *Sphaerophoria scripta*
- *Sphaerophoria* *taeniata*
- *Sphaerophoria* *virgata*
- *Sphaerophoria interrupta*
- *Sphaerophoria* *philanta *

Ideally we would need 5 to 10 specimens of each species, not necessarily
collected in the same spot on the same day. I'm sure these species are
common enough to get good numbers.

I you do not mind to help me with this project, please let me know and I
will send you some vials with ethanol for this coming season.

Many thanks in advance!

Kind regards,
