Abstract

Having, in the course of my researches in the bibliography of Australian Mollusca, noted that some specific names, founded on Tasmanian types, are not referred to in the conchological papers contained in recent issues of the Society's transactions, I have thought some utility may be served by their publication. They are not necessarily addenda to the "Census" by the Rev. J. E. Tenison-Woods, as it remains to be ascertained whether they are applicable or not to good species, and if to good species then whether they have priority or not over others already enumerated in the "Census." This task I relegate to the author— a "Revised Census." To the following list I have appended references to the authorities for the specific names, and the localities of the type-specimens.
