Detailed description of two new species, Ancylus irvinae n. sp.
This wonderfully fine and interesting addition to our
Mollucan fauna was obtained by Mr. R. Irvine, of Launceston,
during an excursion to the Lake district. It was found
attached to the rocks in the shallow margin of the lake, and
although apparently numerous at the particular locality
visited but only a very limited number of examples were
collected. (Illustrative Plate) Gundlachia beddomei. n. sp. Habitat – pool off the Brown’s River Road. The specie is dedicated to its discoverer, Mr. C.
E. Beddome, the well known conchologist of Hobart.
