New book, new records

Dear colleagues,

The book "Mediterranean and Atlantic Invertebrate Guide" (305 pages, about 800 
species, about 1100 underwater photos) by Peter Wirtz and Helmut Debelius, 
which just appeared, contains numerous new records and photos of undescribed 
species (see list below). These are all mine and should be quoted as "Wirtz, 
in Wirtz and Debelius 2003". In most cases, the species were identified by 
experts for the group (see the acknowledgement section in the book).  

The English version of the book is available from Conchbooks
(conchbooks at conchbooks.de) for 42,80 Euros plus postage; the German version
appeared in Jahr Verlag and should be available in any German bookshop for
36,80 Euros. Please do not ask me for a copy.

I can send you a species list for your group of interest.
Comments/corrections welcome !
