A very warm :welcome: to you Francisco. I note your other post on molluscs attached to squid beaks!! Most interesting.

Have you any pics of the beaks and 'molluscs' that you could post online. Bruce Marshall, National Museum of New Zealand, would get rather excited about the squid beak/mollusc find!! He'd also be very interested in the deep-sea molluscs that you're getting (as am I).

This is a very interesting development.
