Alder and Hancock Nudibranchs

February 5, 1999
From: Amelia Campbell

Dr Rudman,
I am an Assistant Curator at the Natural History Museum, in London and have a particular interest in the Alder & Hancock Nudibranchs. I have been trying to sort out the locations of all the type and figured material. While at the Hancock Museum in Newcastle, I saw your correspondances and thought you might be able to help me. I have got as far as preliminarily sorting out the material at the Hancock Museum and also the material here, however there still seems to be a large amount of material that I cannot
locate and wondered if you knew of a possible third location of the collection. I would be very grateful for any help,
Yours sincerely

Dear Amelia,
I'm afraid I don't know of material other than that at the Hancock Museum and in the Natural History Museum. If anyone else knows of material, hopefully they will let us know.
