Hi Yves – I asked for specimens, of course, but no one had taken material.  The word is out though.  Cheers – Gustav

Hello Gustav et al,

 

 
 

'Cool', if spare (wel relaxed and preserved) specimens of this species would still be available, we in Brussels would be most interested to accomodate them.

 

Their accomodating address would be:

 


 Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences (RBINS)

This episode was kind of cool, as it gave me an opportunity to convey a tiny piece of information to two reporters and then to watch it evolve as it passed through the media and internet. I said absolutely nothing about the deep sea to reporters. Likewise, I did not even hint that this stranding was somehow a consequence of warming ocean temperatures, but that has also been attributed to me. Very interesting, and a bit disturbing.

OK – that is funny.  I should have known.  Paul Barber sent me a picture of one a few days back.  So not a deep sea beast after all.  Much more sense.

Hi Bruno – I could not really see much in the article other than your name – curious what critter was involved?  Cheers - Gustav
