Definiton of a new fossil Chiton, Pseudo-ischnochiton, n. gen. The above generic name is proposed provisionally for the reception of a new fossil Chiton which I am describing under the name Pseudo-ischnochiton wynyardensis; which species I designate as the type of the above new genus. Introduction.-Mr. Francis A. Cudmore, to whose earnest collecting we are indebted for so many discoveries in Fossil Mollusca, has placed in my hands for description a single median valve of an undescribed fossil Chiton. It is quite unique in several respects. locality-Table Cape, Wynyard, Tasmania; Tertiary (Janjukian).
