The following marine shells have been placed at my disposal for description by Mr. W. Legrand, of Hobart Town, and the Rev. H. D. Atkinson. Mr W. Legrand, who has one of the finest collections of shells in the southern hemisphere, has been a collector for years, and has become thoroughly familiar with the marine fauna of our coast. Mr. Atkinson has occupied himself with dredging for some years, and has been the only conchologist who has sought for novelties in that way in Tasmania. He has also been indefatigable in his efforts to advance the success of conchology in the Island, and it is owing to his efforts alone that some of tlie very interesting species here described have been brought to light.
