Dear annelid researchers, dear Tomo Miura, dear Geoff,

The tube staining method was developed by Dr. Charles R. Fisher of
Pennsylvania State University. His e-mail address is cfisher at psu.edu
The stained worms on page 95 are the vestimentiferan Lamellibrachia sp.,
while, if I am not mistaking, a second species (Escarpia sp.) can be seen at
the periphery of the main Lamellibrachia "bush" on pages 96-97. I am not
quite sure they have clearly been assigned to species yet. But Chuck Fisher
would be the most appropriate person to ask.
