Abstract

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.
