This interesting fossil is more closely allied to the existing
H. launcestonensis than to any other Tasmanian form, and it
is nearly its equal in size.
The fragments of rock, in which several specimens of this
interesting shell were found imbedded, were presented to me by
Mr. A. Simson, who obtained them through Admiral
Barnard, from Kent's Group.
