Dear Bill,
Thank you for your kind and quick message. Here is part of my reply to Cynthia about collecting in Japan.
"Dear Cynthia,
I hope I can help you to find some suitable marine labs to collect Placida dendritica in Japan. If you would like to collect them in a real Inland area, you can visit two laboratories in Seto, Inland Sea of Japan, western Japan.

If the Inland area is not necessarily important, you can have more choices. I can give you some addresses you can contact when you give me some idea of your plans

Fortunately or unfortunately, there is no special regulations for collecting opisthobranchs in Japan..."

As to your interest in information from Japan, I am learning to send pictures by jpeg image, so wait one moment. I am happy to send information from Japan!

All the best wishes,

Dr. Y. J. Hirano
Kominato Marine Laboratory
Amatsu-kominato, 299-5502
