I felt this had a certain 19th Century feel. This is various members of the Walter family, using an Opticron Galleryscope with microscope attachment to look at an ant lion one evening in the caravan at Uluru (Ayers Rock). The ant lion had been collected from the ladies toilet in the campground. In my experience a well lit public toilet is an extremely rich source of invertebrate specimens. The galleryscope is known in my family as 'the pervoscope'.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
