Abstract

I am indebted to the kindness of Mr. T. Stephens, M.A., F.G.S., for an opportunity of examining the fossils which form the subject of the present communication to the Society. They represent two localities and two horizons, geologically speaking. The first and largest parcel, consisting almost wholly of Trilobite remains, is from the Mersey River district, North Tasmania, whilst the other fossils are from a conglomerate of unknown age at Table Cape. It will perhaps be best to consider the two as distinct from one another.
