Specialist for Morpho wanted

Hi all, I have this morpho from an old collection, no date and no location. The previous contributor is deceased. Can someone help me? Possibly it is M.achilles. Other butterflies in the box are all from Peru, maybe this helps. Thanks Joachim https://e1.pcloud.link/publink/show?code=VZOTs8ZoJkgFkGWF...

old specimen Armandia lidderdaleii

This I obtained some time ago. It is from the 50´s or sixt`s. Armandia lidderdaleii I consider to sell it but selling might be illegaal through it is an old specimen. What do you all think? https://e1.pcloud.link/publink/show?code=XZlQp8ZAsnYlDuAFFzKRoehJFlr28rvsIQk https://e1.pcloud.link/publink/sh...

Re: Pest deterrent

Hello, what I find a way to disinfect: Put all butterflies in a clean, new box. This with cold spray ( to -42 degrees cool - caution because of the fingers ) cool, that should kill all eggs and beetles. Put the box ( I have small cardboard boxes ) in the microwave and full power for 1 min. Put butte...

Papilio machaon, long time ago

https://e1.pcloud.link/publink/show?cod ... OPD4y4JzrV
This is not an extraordinary butterfly but it was the first butterfly I bred when I was 15. At that time the machaon was found in every garden. Here I saw the last one 8 years ago.

Hello, thank you, I know the procedure but I have no way to freeze anything, we bnneed the fridge for food and have no room for another. Therefore my question about poison gas or other gas.

Re: Disinfection and cleaning of butterflies in frames or boxes

P.S. Or does anyone have an idea to take the moth out of the frame and prepare it? This is almost a surgical operation, was relatively expensive, so "no risk no fun?".

Disinfection and cleaning of butterflies in frames or boxes

Hello, I was able to acquire this specimen last week, probably from 1969 or 1970. My question is (I have several such frames and small boxes, which I do not want to open, but could possibly have pest infestation) how they can be disinfected. My idea was to expose everything in airtight plastic bags ...
