Specimen table of genomic-grade specimens

Genomic-grade specimens available through Torsten Dikow.
Specimens of Apioceridae, Asilidae, and Mydidae currently available for molecular phylogenetic analyses, i.e., were collected in 96% ethanol, RNALater, DNAgard, or liquid Nitrogen. The material is based on the collections that Torsten Dikow has access to and are deposited in the Smithsonian NMNH Biorepository and does not list all species available worldwide.
Several people contributed to the collecting or organization of the material and are thanked for their assistance.
