Cypris Alburyana (n. s.).-Gregarious
in the altered opalescent rock overlying the basalt in the
Travertin Limestone Quarry at Geilston.
Specimens of this freshwater entoniostracan were collected
by me some two or three years ago in abundance at Geilston.
It is an interesting form, as it affords us valuable information
regarding the condition under which opal-like rock was
formed prior to the peculiar change in its structure. Includes cross section drawings.
