Steuer's expedition in the coasts of Alexandria, this sampler was use only once at 2 September 1933. According to A. Steuer's preliminary report difficulties in the manipulation of this sampler prevented further investigations with this gear.

Study Extent This report is only a part from a large faunistical expedition that took place in the coasts near Alexandria at 1933 by A. Steuer.
