More from Operation Wallacea

Dear Bill

Many thanks for posting your comments on the Chromodorids I sent through and also a big thank you for creating a separate page with all our finds to be listed. Monica will be thrilled to hear of this - I sent her a note with one of the volunteers who went to Pulau Hoga last Friday so she should have had a copy of your email by now.   I will email you as full a list as possible of all those we have found and identified to date and will gradually, but hopefully without too much delay, email scans of the pictures.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to printout your posted comments in time to include with my letter to her but am building up a batch which will go out on 3 December.

Apologies for not getting back to you sooner but it seems that the last few days have been the most popular ones for friends coming to London, including Bernard Picton and Christine Morrow.  Unfortunately due to my car breaking down and their other commitments while in London, we weren't able to spend much time together but Bernard was delighted to hear of all your help.

Today I have attached pictures of several more Chromodorids. If you have any problems with the photos please let me know - they were scanned in at a larger size but I reduced them to send to you.

Once again, many thanks for all your help and your interest.
With best wishes

Dear Lindsay,
I will post the pictures up separately in the next week. It would be useful to have a little information to accompany each photo. Either a date and collection number, even if not detailed locality data. As a museum taxonomist I know how important it is to tie pictures to actual specimens and/or data.

Your pictures include:
Chromodoris willani
Chromodoris strigata
