Mary Sue, wow! That was 99?. I don't use Eudora any more. I've swapped to Outlook. Interesting to read it again. No, I didn't scan the article to my page. Just a small precis about the Hespero. I do have the article somewhere in my possession as Eric posted me (snail) a copy, which is very informative. When I asked him about the species I told him that one of the labels was "Species KM 759" or something similar. He told me that it would be the collectors reference to where he found it in the wild and would refer to the mileage post on the side of the road, so they would be able to find it again. It sounds like a logical explanation. regards, Bill Richardson Gippsland Australia 0-15c. Cold, wet days of winter.
