I'd like to replace the peel-off rubber eye cup on my Morpheus with the new, improved screw-on version that has an M43 metal thread to attach to the eyepiece (SKU #2454655).

These are available from dozens of vendors in Europe who won't ship to the US, but I can't find anyone here in the States. Any suggestions?

FLO won't ship them to the USA?

I'm pretty sure they will.

I replaced the eyecup on my 14mm recently.

It's a big improvement IMO. One caveat though, the threads are covered in grease so you need to take care when threading the new M43 metal thread on. The rubber guard may pull off the metal part. I spent a long time with Baader cleaning fluid getting grease off the eye lens.

It seriously improves eye placement ergonomics for me now though.

Send me your address and email address in a private message and I'll send you one, along with the extender ring.

Those screw on eye cups & rings will also fit any eyepiece with M43 eye end threads.
