Hi again Daniel

Hi again David,
Thanks for sending us another Katydid from Madagascar.  This individual is a female.  We will again contact Piotr Naskrecki to see if he can provide a species identification.  We hope to have all updates done today as we will be away from the office for a week beginning tomorrow.  Since we postdated your previous submission, we are going to change the date so it will go live now and the link will be active.

Hi Daniel,
This is either Odontolakis or Centrocephalus (Concephalinae: Agraeciini), but likely an undescribed species. I have collected a very similar looking species in Ranomafana.

Hi Daniel
I have another few Katydids from Madagascar that I’d like to send through to you but I realise you’re just back from your break and I don’t want to overwhelm you while you clear your backlog. Would it be ok if I sent through another ID request to yourself and Piotr this week? If not I will wait another week before sending anything through. I was very excited to see Piotr’s comment that my last submission was an undescribed species.
Hope you had a good rest,
Best regards,

Hi David,
Please wait for the weekend.  Our backlog is significant, but gainful employment demands are far greater.
