Our knowledge of Australian mollusca is almost confined to
descriptions from the shells alone. Nearly all that we do
know of the animals inhabiting the shells has been given to
us by Messrs. Quoy and Gaimard in the voyage of the
Astrolabe, where the plates as far as they go, leave but little
to be desired. In the Nudibranchiate section Mr. G. F.
Angas, F.L.S., etc., has done good service. But the greater
part of the field remains untrodden. I propose in this paper to
give a more detailed account than has yet appeared of the
shells and animals of some Tasmanian Patellidae.
