Hi Peter,

Just freeze the specimen and take it in to the Museum at your convenience. A 'phone call would probably be best to make sure that someone is there to receive and store it. I am not sure of the arrangements in Melbourne. I know that Walter Boles at the Australian Museum in Sydney is always happy to get specimens.

Include a piece of paper with the species name, date, location (lat., long. if known), cause of death (if known), collector's name and contact details.
