Copenhagen ZMUC vist

Just came back Denmark where I had a wonderful time visiting several friends and colleagues (Adam Brunke, Mariana Chani, Andrea Schomann and Alexey Solodovnikov) there. The visit was funded by an RCA grant from UTC and it was really great to spend a week just talking/working with rove beetles. I found many specimens that are going to be used in upcoming revisions and I also had the opportunity to examine the Fabricius collection for Xanthopygina rove beetle. Sometimes it is just nice to be able to spend a week looking at specimens without worrying about all the usual office / life things.
