Hello all,

Well I found the list of Langerhans Madeira etc preparations in an old, very old, email from Mary Petersen (02 Nov 1994).  As I understand the circumstances this is a transcription by Mary of a photocopy of the Naturisches Museum Wien register pages for ~1884, obtained by Phyllis Knight-Jones.  It is said by Phyllis to be in Langerhans handwriting. The explanation detail is Mary's. Polycirrus triglandula is recorded there. Langerhans died young, in 1888, in Madeira.


>From left to right, the following headings are used:

[Catalogue] No. - Probably = Langerhans' catalogue number
Stuckzahl und Art der Conservering - Number of specimens and type of    
   preservation; mikrosk. Praep. [here written mP] = slide; "n" probably =
   no slides
Jahr der Aufstellung - Year received?  This column has 1884, a roman numeral 
   that goes at least up to XIV, thus not a month (perhaps something like an 
   accession number), and a small arabic numeral, more or less in same 
   sequence as catalogue numbers, but the system is not clear to me.  The 
   arabic numbers are sometimes reversed relative to the catalogue numbers; 
   it seems like Langerhans attempted to list the specimens first and slides 
   from these afterwards, which may be why the arabic numbers do not always   
   follow the same sequence as catalogue numbers.
Name - Genus species Author
Fundort - Locality; Puerto = Puerto de la Orotava, on the N coast of 
   Tenerife, Canary Islands
Erhalten von (gesammelt von) - Received from (collected by) 
K/G/T - only a guess, but perhaps refers to storage (G, T - Glass or Tube) or 
   exhibition container.  G usually given for first entry on each page, 
   probably applies to all unless indicated otherwise, but only included 
   below when this is on same line as species treated. 
Special-Katalog Fol. - usually blank 
Abgang Fol. - seems to be date (and number of) specimens [St.] given away

Hello Jérôme

I don't know, but the types and slides of Langerhans that survived are supposedly mostly at  Naturisches Museum Wien.
In 1994 Phyllis Knight-Jones reported they were there. There is a list of the species found somewhere but I am not sure if I ever saw it. Someone else may have it. Also some slides of Langerhans were found at Zoological Institute of the University of Freiburg, Germany, but these were Syllidae only.
