Dear Colleagues,

You might find interesting a detailed set of observations and notice
linking swarming Odontosyllis enopla with the mysterious lights seen by

        Crawshay LR
        1935 Possible bearing of a luminous syllid on the question of the
landfall of Columbus. Nature 136:559-560 (Oct. 5th, 1935).

Another possibility, if those sightings were closer to Caribbean
localities, is the swarming of Odontosyllis luminosa San Martin 1990. The
paper is:

        San Martin G
        1990 Eusyllinae (Syllidae, Polychaeta) from Cuba and Gulf of
        Mexico. Bulletin of Marine Science 46:590-619

Best wishes,


 La Ciencia del Tercer Mundo no esta perdida, sino ignorada.
 Third World Science is not lost (Sci. Amer. Aug. 1995:76),
  just ignored.
