Abstract

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.
