Great account of the legendary arnoldi.. Will try to find slides
of 3 different filamentosus/arnoldi type fishes running around in the
70's. Robert I am trying to remember the line drawing that was i the
Arnold and Ahli translation of a work that the AKA did in the early
60's. I have a copy somewhere, but maybe someone on the list has one handy
and can recount the line drawing that it contained. ........
If you or someone is familiar with the drawing, did that
feature filamentosus or arnoldi ?
