Hi Bill,
I know this animal was previously in the unidentified pages of this Forum. It seems however that it has recently moved to another page. What is the name of page that you identified ?

Dear Haruo,
I have moved this to Doris? sp 9. Still basically unidentified, but with Scott Johnson's photo I decided to move it from the 'unidentified' pages. Sorry if it appeared to disappear.

It is difficult to keep track of messages about 'unnamed' species or of 'species' which change their names. This is one reason we changed the way we cite messages on the Forum some time ago. The citation is now based on the unique number each message has. This means that no matter how many times I change the page a message is on it can always be found.
For example:
This if course won't help when you 'just know' it was on the unidentified page but hopefully it does make things a bit easier.
