Henning is reviewing anaspid scales with Tiiu Märss and Giles Miller. He gave a talk on their findings at Jurmala. They have sorted out scale types on the well-known articulated specimens from Norway and can now relate isolated remains to these and recognise new taxa.

Wim is still pursuing and finding beautiful Silurian thelodont specimens in Scotland. He is working on the internal squamation of Loganellia scotica.

a bag of Scottish fossil fish (mostly acanthodians) to prepare. Otherwise she is working on her thesis. She writes:
Heard a few interesting talks in London (NHM meeting), and now know, amongst other things, a few molecular biol/genetics/systematics etc buzz-words and that lungfish are more closely related to us than coelacanths. Cyclostomata are a real entity again; and oral/pharyngeal denticles AREN'T the same as scales according to some - oh well! back to the drawing board!
