Hi Dick,
Many kind thanks indeed.  I have forwarded the info to George
Ball, my former professor.
Now all I have to do is dig up information on Charles Clerck himself.
He was a naturalist, keen on spiders, a member of the Swedish
Academy of Sciences, and a good friend of Linnaeus.
Born in 1710, died in 1764.  That is all I know.  Anyone else know
more, or where to get more information on Charles Clerck?
