Baja California | August, 2010 |

Together with Anna Phillips (Smithsonian Institution), Alejandro Oceguera-Figueroa (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Mexico) and Alejandro Grajales (American Museum of Natural History), the team set out to discover the leech diversity of Baja California Sur with emphasis on the praobdellid Limnobdella mexicana. One of the aspects that made this such an outstanding fieldtrip was that we were simultaneously collecting sea anemones in a marine setting, allowing us to experience both coastal and inland fauna. As befits a leech collection trip, we found Limnobdella mexicana on our last day of collecting, making the trip a complete success.
