Dear Colleagues:

Thank you very much for your responses to my question about crustacean newsletters (restricted mostly to those that deal with systematics and taxonomy).  I am very grateful to those of you who pointed out a few that I had missed or who made other corrections.

As promised, here is the updated list, in alphabetical order.  I hope that it proves useful to some of you!

With best wishes,

Jody Martin
