I collect insects since I was 13 years old, I am from Barcelona (Spain), now I am 45 years old and I have resumed the collection after 5 years without touching a bug.
In Spain the collection of insects is not very popular, and as far as I know there are only two stores that keep selling, there were three but this year one of them closed. I like coleoptera, especially Cyclamattus, mecynorhinas, odontolabis, cerambycidae, buprestidae ... I do not have a large collection, but if I like that what I have is well preserved, I am very interested in all techniques to optimize the maintenance of collections, degreasing techniques, repair, color recovery, faster rehydration.
In short it has been a pleasure to find a place where i can learn and share the knowledge about it, and maybe get in touch with other collectors in Barcelona / Spain.
