How many Sacoglossan species?

June 7, 2002
From: Paola Gianguzza

Dearest all,
How many sacoglossan species have been descibed up until now? I've read that they should be around 250? Do you agree? Have you some recent references to mention for this?
Thank you in advance

Dear Paola,
Perhaps someone is keeping a list and can give us a 'guesstimate'
