Abstract

A full description of the Table Cape species as follows: -Pectunculus M'Coyi, Johnston.—Pectunculus laticostatus of Tenison Woods and Prof. M'Coy. This shell, hitherto, has erroneously been referred to P. laticostatus, Quoy. It is very abundant in the Table Cape beds and is identical in every respect with specimens of the same age received from Cape Schanck.
