Annelid community:

I am interested in polychaetes that make tubes (e.g., Capitella,  
Dinophilus), and the possibility of obtaining specimens (fixed is OK)  
and/or tubes. My application will be mostly histological and TEM, for  
the purpose of determining the structural and evolutionary  
relationships between clitellate egg cases and polychaete tubes. Our  
preliminary data suggests that secretory glands producing these  
respective structures are related, and I believe an expansion of our  
data set would be revealing.

If you or a colleague has suitable material available, please let me  
know and I will be happy to cover shipping expenses, etc.

Thank you very much.
