Some intestinal trematodes (I presume) crawled from the anus of a freshly dead lancetfish (Alepisaurus ferox). If anybody is interested I can send a photo and later (against modest contribution to the cost of obtaining them) specimens preserved in 96 ethanol.
I also preserved some Alepisaurus tissue and have other (more or less rare) fish tissues. Anybody needing tissue samples of marine organisms can contact me. See my books (first web page below) on what we have here at Madeira Island. Will go to the Cape Verde Islands in October again.
