Gilbert P. Whitley was the Ichthyologist, Australian Museum, Sydney. (Communicated by L. F. Giblin.) (Read 13th August, 1928.) Thanks to the kindly interest of Professor T. T. Flynn, I have been allowed to examine and report upon an interesting note-book inscribed "Memoranda relating to the Fishes of Tasmania examined by Robt. M. Johnston." This is an old exercise book, bebnging to the library of the University of Tasmania, which contains the original notes from which Robert Mackenzie Johnston wrote his invaluable paper, entitled: "General and Critical Observations on the Fishes of Tasmania; with a Classified Catalogue of all the known "species" and is especially important because some sketches therein illustrate the types of Johnston's new species which have not been figured in scientific publications. Johnston's notes are mostly still legible and many are transcribed in this paper. Additions and annotations as have been thought advisable are enclosed in square brackets to distinguish them from Johnston's actual notes. I have brought the nomenclature of the species up to date, whilst including the original identifications. References to literature have been added and the notes arranged in an order more in conformity with modern classifications.
