Elaterid generic info
Elaterid generic info here [PDF] (above link not working)

this link's dead too
comes up as a 404. Googling for the title of the document didn't reveal any new URLs to the paper

weird thing is,
...your working link uses the same url as the failing one! i wish i had a clue why

Same URL save for the 79 at the end...

thanks again -- now i know my link would never work:
the field size is limited, and keeps shaving the damn digits off the blessed URL...

the url keeps changing, it's not the first time...

Broken URL
Does anyone have a PDF copy of this? I can't find it anywhere.
