There are three people who have done extensive work on neotropical
earthworms.  Unfortunately, I do not have their e-mail addresses except
for Dr. John W. Reynolds (who has graduated from chairing a college
department to steering big trucks!).

Gilberto Righi -- Brazil
Carlos Fragoso -- Mexico (Veracruz)
Dr. John Reynolds, editor Megadrilogia,  john.reynolds1 at sympatico.ca

Contact Dr. Reynolds first and he will provide you with contact with Dr.
Righi & Dr. Fragoso.  

Unfortunately, the specimens may not be suitable for study for very long.
70% ethanol does not properly fix anneliden tissues and the specimens
deteriorate quite rapidly.  95% ethanol or fixation in 10% formalin for
24 hours before transfer to 70% ethanol is recommended.
