New Australian Specimens

Hello Everyone
Australian specimens are always extremely difficult to get as they must be sourced from government registered captive breeders. These are far and few between.

Today we have updated the Australian specimens page with some restocks and lots of new specimens. Stock is very limited of these difficult to obtain specimens.

All specimens are sent with appropriate export permits from Australia.

African Singles Page Updated

Hello Everyone
The popular African Singles page at Insect Designs has just been updated with some lovely fresh specimens from Cameroon. The Single Beetles page has also been updated. The best specimens normally sell fast, so it's best to be quick to secure what you are after. Many specimens are unidentified and there are often hard to find specimens available for the keen collector. Of special note this time is some very nice long tailed moths.

There will be another package on the way from Cameroon next week, so we should have even more interesting specimens available soon, including some rare Charaxes.
