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.
