Abstract

A very few years ago the island of Tasmania was regarded as
being poor in land shells, but thanks to the zeal and activity
of many naturalists, especially Messrs. Legrand, Atkinson and
Petterd, the number of species brought to light is now very
large. If the island cannot take a leading position for the
number and peculiarity of its forms it has by no means an
insignificant one. Up to a recent period the description of
the species were scattered over an immense number of
scientific works according as they had been described by
various observers in different countries.
