This paper was commenced over a year ago as a joint paper in collaboration with the late W. L. May, but was laid
aside owing to the untimely death of Mr. May, whereby the
Writer has lost his greatest friend, who was his colleague
on so many collecting trips, and Science has lost a conchologist
of outstanding ability.
The earlier part of the paper records the results of
a collecting trip to the north-western corner of the State.The party consisted of W. L. May, Watson Coleman, Miss
Ashby, and the writer.
The 28th and 29th October, 1924, were spent at Robbins
Island and the 30th and 31st at Penguin.
The discovery of
representatives of the two genera, Stenochiton and Lepidopleurus,
new to the State is of particular interest.
Includes notes on the ecology and range of habitat and a short key to species of stenochiton.
