"We are conducting a survey of intracellular bacteria in insects. Our collaboration 
with the parataxonomy program at PNG has been most productive. An excellent 
sample of insects encompassing a broad range of taxa was collected and identified for 
this research. As a result the project is moving ahead efficiently and we hope to have 
information on the distribution and diversity of intracellular bacteria from these 
insects soon."
