Hi All,

Will anyone be snorkeling or diving within the next few months?  I?m  
looking for two small hydrozoans from the Caribbean/Gulf waters.  #1  
is Abylopsis eschscholtzi, a siphonophore and #2 is an anthoathecate  
jellyfish (species unknown, but I have pics) with green and orange/red  
fluorescence.  My need is for the animal tissue, intact as much as  
possible.  I can send tubes and RNALater for storage as well as  
shipping materials, or send replacement supplies.  I had collected  
both specimens in 2007 and no longer have any tissue left for some  
final work.  I can forward pictures of both animals (white light and  
fluorescent) to assist with identification.  Email directly at  
mehunt at mail.utexas.edu if you have the opportunity to help so I don't  
spam everyone.  Much appreciated!
