Mr. P. B. NYE, M.Sc., B.M.E., Government Geologist.
Like Mr. Lewis, I only desire to set forth my views as
a contribution to Tasmanian geology. I cannot see eye to
eye with Mr. Lewis in many points in his paper and particularly
in regard to some of the major conclusions.
In the first place, in view of Dr. Walkom's papers on
the Mesozoic fossil flora of Tasmania (Walkom, 1924-1925),
I think we ought to drop the term Jurassic as applied to any
rocks in Tasmania. Fossil evidence points rather to their
being Triassic and this period will probably be found to
include the whole sandstone series.
Much discussion ensuded.
