Abstract

Some time since, that is in May, 1876, I read a paper before this Society on some Australian Patellidae, on which occasion I referred to two Tasmanian species of Siphonaria, S. denticulata and S. diemanensis, which were the names I supposed them to have received from Messrs. Quoy and Graimard. (Voyage de l'Astrolabe, Vol. 2, p. 327, and 340.) Since reading that paper I have had an opportunity of seeing type specimens of both these shells, and I find that the one I considered to be identical with S. denticulata, var. Tasmanica mihi., is an undescribed species of a very marked character.
