Abstract

The following species of marine shells have been placed at my disposal for description by Mr. W. Legrand, the wellknown conchologist of Hobart Town. They were all procured recently in a series of dredging operations, conducted by the Rev. H. D. Atkinson, in Long Bay, D'Entrecasteaux Channel. They are eight in number, comprising three species of Marqinella, and one species respectively of the genera. Triforis, Odontostoma, Eulima (?) Neaera, and Cardita. Apparently they have hitherto escaped the attention of naturalists, owing no doubt to their very small size, and probably also because dredging in the interests of conchology has been almost untried in Tasmania.
