I am beginning a research project at the University of New Mexico that 
will attempt to use molecular characters to develop a genus-level 
phylogeny of the Schistosomatidae.  My primary concern at the moment is 
the collection of specimens for use in this analysis.  I have access to 
members of the genus Schistosoma and am working on aquiring 
representatives of other genera in the family.  If you have any such 
specimens that are or can be properly preserved for molecular analysis 
please contact me.  I will (of course) accept donations but will also be 
willing to try to work out some sort of specimen exchange if any of the 
North American parasites I can collect are of interest to anyone.  I also 
have money available for travel to collecting sites and would very much 
appreciate information about areas where the examination of snails, 
birds, and/or mammals would likely yield schistosomatids.  Any information 
will be greatly appreciated.

Sincerly,
