I beg to bring under the notice of the Society a new
species of Ampullaria, a genus hitherto unknown in the
Australias. Some time since I described all the known
freshwater- shells of the island which duly appeared in last
year's transactions. Since then I have described a new
Valcata, V. tasmanica which was discovered by that most
industrious entomologist, Aug. Simson, who obtained it
from a creek in Gould's Country. Since then in looking
over some shells kindly placed at my disposal by Ronald
Gunn, Esq., F.L.S., I have found the Ampullaria which I
now describe.
