Dear all, especially Chris,

I have searched my files again for salinities in which Ficopomatus
miamiensis is found. The lowest is in Heard 1979 (2-25 per mille) and Del
Pilar Reyes etc (2-32 per mille); the highest in Salgado-Barragan et al
(27-43 per mille). So I am fairly confident that this too can be counted
out as a freshwater species.
