LZ-230 Vestigial Wing Drosophila

Delighted with the tube you sent me - the best I have seen in a long time.
For many years I have been interested in fruit flies both academically and for pleasure. Sadly students are excluded from my sort of biology! - although my local doctor some twenty years ago explained she had been a breeder of flies.
Many thanks.

Arrived well on time in perfect condition with all organisms intact

Package arrived intact and on-time - also the added bonus of a heads-up on when package had been sent and when to expect delivery.
