Abstract

The following new and very interesting species were, for
the most part, collected by the Rev. H. D. Atkinson, and,
with few exceptions, at Circular Head. An accurate knowledge
of that fauna has long been a desideratum, and science
may be congratulated on having such an industrious and
painstaking collector as Mr. Atkinson settled there. A few
other species are from different collectors, as noted at the
end of each diagnosis. The list shows the spread of the
eastern Australian coast fauna into N, Tasmania; while in
the new species the recognised Tasmanian molluscan facies
is not materially departed from.
