Trinidad visitor

Last week a visitor from Trinidad visited the Leiden museum: Mike Rutherford, curator at the natural history museum at the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine visited me for three days.

Together we looked up all the specimens of land snails from Trinidad & Tobago in the collection, visited the NCB molecular lab and at the last day we dissected some snails.
We discussed future projects and the possibilities for joint work. Trinidad is certainly an interesting place and its malacofauna is mainly known from the studies by R.L. Guppy in the 19th century. Time for an update!

These were my last days in Leiden for now. During August I will be heading to Australia for field work. Keep you updated, as long as internet access permits.
