#label so small cannot read. Read date with maginifying glass. Other data might be: Alamenda Co???, Location Valley ???. Need bigger label

#country. did a google to find country. hope that is OK.
@gbrilmyer. Thanks so much, sorry to bother you. I figured it out and appear to be brighter now than I was a month ago when I started.
#error, date shown is 1893 or 94, no pull down for those years. Male symbol was noted in Other Comments, is that correct?
#error- bug is over part of location, someone needs to look at actual specimen. Most likely is something like N, E, W, S under the bug.
