IMPORTANT WARNING: When sending specimens to our museum, under no
circumstances use a private courier (UPS, Fedex, DHL, etc.). The material
must be sent by regular postal service only. In Brazil, the private
couriers have been under closer scrutiny by regulatory Federal agencies.
These agencies too frequently have, without justification, temporarily
retained (and worse, even destroyed) inert biological samples sent for
scientific studies.
