Abstract

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.
