   There's a picture in Leo Opdyke's French Aeroplanes Before The Great War 
of a Morane pusher floatplane which is called "Type Biplan" and is described 
as "a Farman look-alike seaplane which flew at Monaco with 'Morane Saulnier' 
painted on the nacelle...also the inscription 'LeRhone'."  Would this be the 
same one?  No other pushers are mentioned. Where on the web did you find 
your reference?

Cheers
Brad
