Operation Wallacea - progress report

October 13, 1999
From: Richard Smith

Dear Bill,
I don't know if you remember but I wrote to you at the end of last year after spending 8 weeks with Operation Wallacea where I found a dozen or so unidentifieds. I went out there again this year for a further 8 weeks. My only job this time was to look for nudibranchs, and I found about 30 unidentifieds this time round. Some interesting things I found was a group of 5 or so Ilbia mariana, one of which I found last year, and you identified as being previously known only from Guam. I also found a Trapania toddi and various other species I'm sure you'll be seeing soon.

Dear Richard,
I look forward to seeing your finds, not just the unidentified, but any you think would be of interest.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
