In addition to their general importance as members of a remarkable family, the Tasmanian Galaxiidae are of special interest for several reasons. First, there are, as shown below, good grounds for believing that the island provides the type-locality of the genotype of the foundation-genus; secondly, the early observations of Johnston in Tasmania rank in historic interest with those of Hutton and Clarke in New Zealand; thirdly, the diversity of the Tasmanian Galaxiid fauna, it is now becoming apparent, rivals that of New Zealand, traditionally regarded as the headquarters of the family.
