Leuba, thanks for the advice but I have participated in the collection of several of this specimens with Dr. Van Den Berghe, and we have the permission to post some of this species on Project Noah. He is aware of the project but matter of time, he can't participate on this activity. The owner of the collection is Dr. Eric Van Den Berghe, and he collected this species in the class of Biodiversity with the support of the students, and I include myself and my classmates.
I hope I can answer your doubt. Thank you anyway.

Rommel, you have posted at least 5 specimens from Dr Van den Berghe's collection on Project Noah, requesting information. If these have not been collected/mounted by you for the collection, then they should not be posted on Project Noah. It would be better if you used FaceBook for this. On Project Noah postings should be your own spottings or someone else's if you have their permission to do so. If they are not yours, please remove them. Thank you.
