Long time since I have seen a post from you. I assume you are still on the mission field.
If you are in Africa, are you still collecting butterflies??
Yes, still in DRC. And still collecting... but in a very limited fashion. Severe insecurity in my province + Covid travel restrictions limited me to just two collecting trips since May 2019. Fortunately, both trips produced great results.
For me fresh specimen about 10 min. Papered 15min on average.
I'd say about the same, 10 minutes for freshly killed specimens. It used to take me 15-20 minutes for relaxed specimens but I just can't be bothered with the hassle any more, I pay somebody else to do it for me.
