I am working with an MSc student, Aileen McConnell, on the taxonomy of
Sarcoptes scabiei. The initial phase of the project is morphological.
We have specimens from dogs and humans in north Queensland, Australia,
but would like to examine specimens from different localities and from
Does anyone know where such specimens may be deposited? Does anyone have
specimens they would be prepared to loan or donate?
