Well, my main squeeze won't be back before the 22nd.That ought to keep my me away from almost certain temptations. Whci one shall I start with?

And by the way, I wouldn't mind having someone to check on overall style. Some of the french form might pop in once in a while.

Whichever you like. I'm biased in favor of the vampyronassa article, due to the total ceph content (no arthropods to muddle through) and the fact it describes mine in great detail, but as I say, whichever you like. After all, some others here might like to hear more about the rhomboteuthis or belemnites. Thanks again in advance for looking into them! :notworth:

Oh, I just wish I had a copy of a translation of both those stunning articles when I wrote my pieces on Fossil Octopuses and The Vampire Squid. Some of the information there would have been invaluable. I did attempt to contact the museum at Voulte at the time, but nothing was forthcoming after a brief initial response. Oh well, it's a good couple of years ago now...

I suppose revised versions would not be out of the question one day.

Then vampyronnassa it will be. Just don't expect a version by tommorrow. It might take a bit of time. My priority right now is to make a round-up of the US grand prix on sunday for a web site i'm with since 2000.

Vampyronassa pic/info

Hello all,
I agree, this is a wonderful article. Phil, I read the old post saying you'd like info/pics on vampyronassa. I have the french copy of its description, and I have a picture of a nice specimen of Vampyronassa. I can take more if you want a close-up of a part. Attaching photo. Let me know if you want me to repost the photo to the gallery or if it gets automatically posted there.

Hi Will, I realize you posted this a while ago now, but I would be interested in finding out more about this specimen. Do you still have a copy of the description, or the specimen number? Thanks so much, Alison

I'll try to tag him - @willsquish - but I think he's been gone so long he may not get the email notification :-/ --- you could try a private message, though!
