The 8th Edition of A Taxonomic Listing of Benthic Macro- and Megainvertebrates from Infaunal and Epibenthic Monitoring Programs in the Southern California Bight is now available. It is in searchable PDF format. This edition is expected to remain available until it is superceded by the fully online species database later this year.
NOTE: for a brief time on July 1–2 there was a copy of Edition 8 posted here with a minor omission (one reference). The current copy supercedes that initial posting. No other non-typographic changes were made between copies.

Anthozoans at OCSD.
Tony Phillips will present a review of John Ljubenkov’s personal voucher collection of anthozoans. Tony will reveal some beautiful images he took over the summer of whole body and dissected views. He will also share a few updates to name usage that he discovered and has verified with Meg Daly. This meeting will be of great benefit to Bight ’13 taxonomists who have to ID their own samples this year, since John is not here to ID all the Bight Cnidaria!

Mollusca 2014: Meeting of the Americas at Universidad National Autónoma de Mexico
Mollusca 2014 will be held at the Library Complex Amoxcalli in the Facultad de Ciencias, the Universidad National Autónoma de Mexico. We are expecting a wide global participation in the Congress, and anticipate highlighting the tremendous progress in molluscan research of the Americas. Oral talks and posters will be considered on any topic related to mollusks including, but not limited to, taxonomy, ecology, biology, evolution, fisheries, and the distribution and conservation of marine, terrestrial, and freshwater mollusks. For further information, visit the Santa Barbara Museum website or contact Paul Valentich-Scott at email@example.com
