    Question Essential Guide To Alien Species

    I finally picked up the Essential Guide To Alien Species. I've read most of the books, except NJO (only read Vector Prime) so far, but it's been soooooo long since I've read them, I don't recall in what books the species appear. I wish the book told where the species made its first appearance. Maybe some of you guys could help out. Here's a list, which book did these aliens appear in:
    Anzati (I know they were in the Star Wars comic, but were they in a novel?)
    Barabel
    Codru-Ji
    Coway
    Drovian
    Elomin
    Firrerreo
    H'nemthe
    **'Din
    Jenet
    Khommite
    Kurtzen
    Lorrdian
    Massassi (Jedi Search?)
    Melodie
    Mimbanite
    Myneyrsh
    Phindian
    Pho Ph'eahian
    Pydyrian
    Rishii
    Selonian
    Shi'ido (one of the ugliest and dumbest looking creatures)
    Sluissi
    Ssi-ruu
    Taurill
    Togorian
    Toka (Sharu)
    Trianii
    Verpine
    Vor
    Yaka
    Yevetha
    Zeltron
    Any help would be appreciated

    There was an Anzati Dark Jedi in I, Jedi. Can't think of most of the others right now.

    Ssi-ruuk were in Truce at Bakura, there was Barabel in one of the Thrawn Trilogy books, there was Verpine in Vision of the Future and Massassi were a species on Yavin 4, enslaved by Exar Kun, they're mentioned a few times in the Jedi Academy Trilogy. Most of the others sound familiar, but I can't think of specific books they appear in.
