Hi!

my name is Roisin Nash and I am writing from NUI Galway. I am studing a
sabellid 'Bispira volutacornis'. I have come across a number of parasites
particularly a copepod which I believe may be 'Bispiraphilus tenax' or
otherwise known as 'Gastrodelphys Clausii'. De Saint Joseph first refers
to it in 1894 in ' Annales des sciences naturelles - Zoologique' 7th. Ser.
No. XVII (XI). He also mentions that Graffe in 1883 may have identified a
similar copepod on 'B. volutacornis'.

  What I was wondering was, would anyone know where I might locate a
description of this copepod or other annelid parasites?

 Thanking you in advance,

  Roisin Nash
