Hard to comment about everything but it is more than impressive! In this matter, your collection beats by far our Wiki. I hope next months to have the chance of using some of your pictures and information to enrich the Arthropoda section. Figures of Paramecia is
an example that even if we are always wishing more and more diversity, this hobby is always surpising us. Very Happy
