	(congrats Dave on finding all of that stuff)

	Manter published a review on the subject of Zoogeography in Marine
fishes where he gives a synopsis of the work of Metcalf, von Ihring, 
Johnston, and others on the subject of plate tectonics and parasites.

	The citations for this paper is as follows:

Manter, H. W.  1955.  The Zoogeography of trematodes of marine fishes. 
Experimental Parasitology 4:  62-86.

	Manter may have also mentioned this in his presidential address to the
ASP....but I don't have a copy of it.

Hope this helps.
