Nice occur on the Dutch television Paul!
Paul Beuk 11 April 2017 13:37:56
In Dutch some would use it as plural, for 'exemplaar' (exemplar or specimen). Ten exx. then is ten specimens.

oceanlis2000 08 April 2017 11:27:44

PhilC 25 March 2017 21:53:55
Ibid. is short for Latin ibidem, meaning 'in the same place', so = 'same as the previous reference'. Smile

Perhaps in: Hobby, B.M., & K.G.V. Smith, 1961. The bionomics of Empis tessellata F. (Dipt., Empididae). – Entomologist's Monthly Magazine 97: 2-10.
