Hello everyone,

		Following a conversation with a colleague today, I was wondering 
how many others use the above mentioned stains as an aid to polychaete 
identification?  We use them to accentuate chaetal lobes (Nephtys, 
Glycera etc.), but I vaguely recall hearing that some animals produce 
characteristic patterns when these stains are used - does anyone know of 
any literature published, or is this one of those tools that gets used in-
house only?  I would be pleased to get any information  

Many thanks
