Body mass is an important, necessary parameter in life history studies. For insects, body mass is hard to obtain for large samples of species that may be distributed worldwide, making comparative studies difficult. Dry weights of museum specimens would be convenient, but specimens are generally inseparable from their pin. Here, ...
