RE: "Did 'Nessie' roam Down Under?"



Here are some (very small) pictures of the Opallionectes material for anyone interested (the articles themselves are identicle to those already posted).

Quoting John Scanlon <riversleigh@outbackatisa.com.au>:

Umoona is the local aboriginal name for the Coober Pedy area, according to
the paper.  And perhaps more relevant, there's a Umoona Opal
Museum in CP which has lent specimens to Kear at the SAM (though not Eric,
of course).

Thanks for the info.
