Dear Cees,

I'm not Jens, I'm Dagmar. I'm just using Jens' account.

I will be pleased to help you if I can.

That`s good fun! Do you draw with pencil? What kind of microscope do you  
have? What is the highest magnification you can use?
A lot of literature about testates (thekamoeba) is very out of date but  
still useful. Some of the publications I read when determining species  
were written 1889 or earlier! -- But to get good information about the  
ecology of testates you have to read the latest publications.

I will make a list of some publications that should be interesting for  
you. I`m afraid it will take a week or so till I will be able to mail you  
these quotations. Till then:

happy times,
