OK; heading up to that time when some of you might be considering a new Masters or PhD research topic.

I thought I'd dangle a little bait, and see if anyone is interested in looking at the New Zealand Cranchiid fauna. The collections are quite diverse (National Museum of New Zealand), and have once been reviewed by Nancy Voss, many years ago now. There have been numerous additions to the fauna since then, and a number of either new species or new geographic records (for New Zealand) exist.

Just 'bumping' this thread (the last post being nearly 3.5 years ago). Yes, I'm looking for someone that might be interested in a taxonomic research programme on New Zealand cranchiid squid. I can assure you that this will be most challenging and rewarding.

I've waited 3.5 already Heather. It all depends on who waves their hand in the air and when. It could be 20 years before somebody does this.

Cheers
