In late October I delivered nearly 1600 tissue samples from Puerto Rico arachnids to the Smithsonian GGI, half for long term deep-freeze storage and half for DNA extraction. Specimens were also sent to experts B. Huber (Alexander Koenig Zoological Research Museum, Bonn, Germany), L. Esposito (UC Berkeley), and N. Platnick and N. Dupérré (AMNH, NY). Work is ongoing photographing specimens and planning the next field expeditions!
