Dear Insect Collectors,
We offer specimens for the amateur, and serious collector alike.
We specialise in and can offer rare and common butterflies for the Neotropical (Central/South America, Caribbean Islands), Holarctic (North America, Europe, Asia) and can frequently offer specimens from these other regions: Afrotropical (Africa, Reunion, Mauritius, Comoro Islands in the Indian Ocean), Oriental (India, Thailand to Indonesia) and the Australian (Australia, New Guinea to Fiji) regions.
Also many moths (including Sphingides and Saturnides) and beetles (mostly unidentified).
Please contact or visit our site often for our latest lists, or let us know your area of interests, or specific specimens you are wishing to add to your collection.
Manching is located in the south of Germany (Bavaria) near Ingolstadt - home of the famous AUDI car-factory - only one hour from Munich Airport and 2 1/2 hours from Salzburg (Austria). Very close to Manching is the Altmühltal (Altmühl-valley) with intact Biotopes for several endangered German butterflies, such as Parnassius apollo and Iphiclides podalirius. This area is very popular with local and foreign tourists during the summer, mainly for bicycle tours and nature lovers. Visitors to our office are always welcome.
We are always interested in new suppliers from anywhere in the world. So if you have good quality material to sell or exchange please contact us. I am always interested in purchasing old collections if of good quality.
The website will be constantly updated with new information pictures and specimens for sale. So add our site to your bookmarks or favourites so you can easily find us next time around.
Hope to hear from you soon.

Any such listed species offered will be accompanied by a CITES re-export permit issued by the German Authority. There will be a handling fee of €10.00 per permit required plus any German Authority charges incurred.
ach permit can accommodate a large number of species and numbers of specimens. This charge will not apply to orders within Germany. The original permit numbers will be supplied with the order if requested.
