Hi Megumi,
         Can you tell me if the little, intertidal, brooding "Henricia 
leviuscula" that Fisher found in Monterey Bay and called "Variety F," has 
been annointed with its own scientific name? I'm lazy, and suspect the 
literature might lead nowhere, so I thought I'd ask you, hoping that you 
and Doug may have dealt with the question. I don't have any interest in 
getting entangled in the systematics of Henricia, but would like to know 
how we'd best label the specimens in our collection.
         Now that I have that off my chest --- best wishes to you and to 
Richard for the new year (and what's left of this one). Hope to see you 
again, soon.
