Dear Dr. Waka:

Thanks Dr. Waka for the information. Please pass my humble condolences to
the family. Thanks so much.
I met Dr. Imagima while he was visiting Dr. Olga Harman´s lab sometime
after 1963 when he agreed to study my small collection of sylliids from the
Bay of Nhatrang, then South Vietnam. The result of his kind work is in my
1967(68) Naga Report publication (if anybody would like to have an scanned
version of this work I´d be glad to provide it. I think Kristian´s pdf
special contribution on the nephtyids of my same Nhatrang collection can be
obtained from the web but if you can´t I can also provide a scanned copy).
Sincerely and with best regards,
