Abstract

Description of sixteen new shells obtained from various locations around Tasmania. The author dredged a specimen of Crosse Concinna Angus in 17 fms., off Kelso, Tamar River. Until now, he believed this species has only been found at Port Jackson, N.S.W., where it is very rare. He was interested to be able to add this rare species to the fauna of Tasmania.
