Dear Mark,


 What a joy, after all these years, to see these holothurians given their due!  As a contributor to the long, long delay, I feel rather guilty, BUT the long wait was worth it, for you have done a magnificent job with these much-travelled beasties.  The paper is just superb.  Sort of ironic that they originated in Antarctica, travelled all the way up to Denmark, then came south again...almost to Antarctica, before they got the attention they deserved. 


Doris joins me in sending affectionate congratulations and best wishes!!  Cheers,  Dave.
