ANNOUNCEMENT, Veronica Delafuentes from Ecuador

Ad type
ANNOUNCEMENT
Description
Hi alltogether

Few days ago I spotted this ad here on this site:
https://www.insect-classifieds.com/lepidoptera/livestock/for-sale-hemileucinae-sp-automeris-pupae-6002.html
A certain Veronica Delafuentes from Ecuador offers cocoons of some nice Automeris species. So I wrote her.
She answered the same day and said all offered cocoons were still available. But there was something that caught my caution.
First, she offers two Automeris species that don't fly in Ecuador. In Colombia and Venezuela they are quite common though. So it was even more suspicious, that these two species were the most expensive ones while real beauties were by far too cheap! So I asked her to send me a picture of all the offered cocoons on one single photo and I wanted her to explain how it comes, she offers some foreign species even though she lives in an Eldorado for many much better bugs. 
Just as I guessed, she didn't send me an explication nor the required photo.
Maybe there anyone out there who realized some good trades with Veronica and I set fire on nothing? However, just wanted to share my experiences with you. So everybody is free proceed however he/she wants.

Best wishes
