[tdwg-content] sample Darwin Core Archives of various flavors

I have been playing around with turning Darwin Core Archives into RDF 
[1] and would like to extend my experiments to attempting to integrate 
data from archives that have very different core files.  I have played 
with the dwcaMolluscsAndorra.zip Occurrence archive mentioned in Annex 3 
of the DwC-A How-To Guide [2], but the Whales-DWC-A.zip file isn't 
available any more (I guess because of the demise of Google Code).  A 
little bit of Google searching failed to turn up additional obvious 
example files.

If anyone would be interested in making DwC-A archives available to me, 
I'd appreciate it.  I'm particularly interested in archives that have 
cores other than Occurrence (although an Occurrence archive that has 
more complex data, including extensions, than the mollusc example would 
be welcome).  If there are any MaterialSample or Event core arcives, 
that would be particularly interesting. 

Preferably, I'd like to have access to archives that contain publicly 
available data, since I'm likely to blog about the outcome and 
potentially use the data in examples.  If there are publicly available 
archives downloadable via a URL, you can reply to the list - otherwise 
let me know how I could access your example.

Thanks in advance for your help!
