Abstract

The investigation has revealed no Tasmanian
galaxiid identical with any New Zealand form.
The fish known hitherto as Galaxias attenuatus in
Tasmania is shown to be at least subspecifically
different from the form bearing this name in New
Zealand. The two forms are referred to the species
maculatus Jenyns on the grounds of page precedence,
and are regarded as different subspecies.
No fish agreeing with G. auratus,Johnson and G.
weedoni Johnston have been found but G. affinis
Regan appears to be a valid species represented by
variants in different waters.
