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.
