Perhaps  it's most famous resident in its long history was  Napoleon Bonaparte

That is not true, at least not for me. The most famous visitor there was my doctoral father, the writer of reference #2 in this article: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grüner_Igelwurm . In the 1980s he was harvesting Bonellia viridis with some hired divers in the Marina di Campo, to extract Bonellin, the green pigment of Chrorophyll-like structure, before developing the first lab synthesis of it. We had original samples (mg) of natural Bonellin in our lab fridge, obviously a treasure.

My goodness Gerold , what  a childhood you must of had.:)

To have a father who did that for a living, would have been a adventure every day for you.

 

I just did some reading on it.  Bonellin is not something you would want to have around without precautions by the sounds of it . The

actual worm doesn't sound like the kind of creature you want to encounter either. I fully understand what you mean by the odor reference :o

 

And the male of the species .... My goodness, I  don't think I will sleep well tonight   :o:o

 

And I quite agree .... Napoleon ....  not even close!!

 

Cheers and thanks so much for this.  

I learned some fascinating things about something I knew absolutely nothing about

All the best 

Pete
