<< Lee, did you try this mesh size with eggs of Nothos of the subgenus
Aphyobranchius ? These are very small and I doubt that even 0.75 mm mesh
would retain them. I have not accurately measured the diameter of
Aphyobranchius eggs but I have photographed them against a 1 mm grid and
they look to be about 0.6 mm in diameter. >>
The smallest eggs that I have seen are Nothobranchius (Fundulosoma)
thierryi Ghana which measured 0.85 mm in my microscope. Next largest were
Nothobranchius eggersi Ruhoi River TAN 95/11 which measured 0.875 mm. These were
retained by the bias stretched marquisette netting.
