I perceive a certain shortage of Lampeyes, particularly the west African
How many still have *Apl. katangae*? How about various *Procatopus* species?
AFAIK, we have never had a stable population of *nototaenia* here in the bay
area. I have *aberrans*, but have not seen *similis* in quite a while.
The rarest I'm propagating is probably *A. aff. microphthalmum* TDK 97/2.
They certainly aren't an "easy going" species by my experience.

Quit bashing Microsoft. They do very good things. They
hire the handicapped -- for example, utter morons
