"I guess my argument is being overlooked. In a single phrase "collecting in museums might come in handy". Besides, the experience of living in a Megadiverse country, like mine (I am from Mexico), would be very instructive to all those who…"

When collecting an organism, have you ever stopped to think that you are extracting a unique individual from nature? And that a single individual represents an important part of the gene pool? It could represent a certain kind of loss from the gene pool if we think of the effective population size. Rare organisms might suffer from our collecting. That is why we must to try to collect as much information from museum collections as possible and that includes, of course, barcoding organisms.
