Dear Dr. Rowe,  I'm getting desperate; a friend of a friend of a friend
suggesting I should email you for your help (I gather you run a computer
discussion group of some sort).  I am completing a large manuscript
describing biting midges (no-see-ums) from Lower Cretaceous Lebanese amber.
In this paper, I would like to discuss the paleoenvironment, including the
other organisms known to be present at that time in Lebanon.  I have been,
in large measure, unable to find anything in the literature.  However, I am
also merely a systematist specializing on this group, working mostly on the
extant fauna but vitally interested in what the fossils might tell me about
diversification of the group.  Therefore, I may be out of touch with the
paleontological literature.  Is there anyone out there who could give me a hand?
        Also, I am trying to locate a C.D. Walley who is apparently working
on the fossil fishes of Lebanon.  Do you have an address/email for him?  How
about Paul Sereno?

        Any help you can give will be much appreciated.  Art Borkent
