No attempt has yet been made to arrange
the freshwater shells of Tasmania. The land shells have
been carefully catalogued by Mr. Legrand, so that little
remains to be desired in that department of our island fauna.
The marine shells have received much attention from most
eminent naturalsts, though a list carefully criticised, with a
well arranged account of the bibliography is much wanted.
But the freshwater shells have been almost entirely neglected.
There have been one or two descriptions of Physa in Reeve,
and one or two other notices of species scattered through
various scientific publications, but the majority of the shells
here described are new to science.
|Additional Information:||In 1843 the Horticultural and Botanical Society of Van Diemen's Land was founded and became the Royal Society of Van Diemen's Land for Horticulture, Botany, and the Advancement of Science in 1844. In 1855 its name changed to Royal Society of Tasmania for Horticulture, Botany, and the Advancement of Science. In 1911 the name was shortened to Royal Society of Tasmania.|
