In the Proceedings of the Royal Society for last year
(1875), I published descriptions of 82 new marine shells
occurring in the Tasmanian seas. I have now to bring
under the notice of the Society an equal number which
have been derived from the following sources:—1st. From
Mr. Ronald Gunu, F.L.S., the eminent botanist, so long
connected with your Society, whose extensive collections,
extending over many years, were placed at my disposal for
description and type specimens of all presented to the
Museum. 2nd. From the collections made by Mr. W. F.
Petterd, during some years past, which were purchased by
a few gentlemen and presented to the Society, to which
also several new and rare species were added by the collector.
|Additional Information:||In 1843 the Horticultural and Botanical Society of Van Diemen's Land was founded and became the Royal Society of Van Diemen's Land for Horticulture, Botany, and the Advancement of Science in 1844. In 1855 its name changed to Royal Society of Tasmania for Horticulture, Botany, and the Advancement of Science. In 1911 the name was shortened to Royal Society of Tasmania.|
