Dear Bill

As we promised in Sicily, here is a summary of our discovery of bacteria in Dendrodoris nigra. It is the first record of bacteria in any gastropod.

Dear Annette & Gillianne,

Thanks very much for sharing this information with us. I am embarrassed that I can't link your story to a Dendrodoris nigra page. I promise to prepare one as soon as possible.

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
