Hi all,

I am happy to report that the Squidworm manuscript is currently in review.  It is an acrocirrid closely related to Swima and a really fantastic animal. For another spectacular image of this animal see Michael Aw's photo of it in the Sept. 2009 issue of National Geographic (page 20 of some versions, evidently not in all). 

Cheers - Karen

This must be due to the great photo taken of it by Laurence Madin, as it is still unnamed even to family in their releases, or anywhere.
