    Thanks D. Dr. Hollingworth (he's in the pictures) had just sent me these links after I'd told him about the living nautilus named after him.

    Yes! fyi... Binominal nomenclature (with an n for zoology???)... The generic name is capitalized, the species name isn't, and both are in a different font than the normal text. So... Rieneckia odysseus. :heee:
