In 1975, Mamet & Roux named Aphralysia capriorae, which they considered to be an alga. They were both in the geology dept.. at U. Montreal, which no longer exists! In their paper, as far as I can tell, they didn't say where the types were reposited. Folks at Montreal have not been able to help, so far. Any clues about where to look for the holotype of A. capriorae?
