The opportunity recently afforded me of inspecting the collection of fish contained in the Australian Museum, Sydney, has enabled me to establish the identity of two species inhabiting Tasmanian waters, concerning which there has hitherto been some amount of uncertainty. The first of those is the large species of Parrot Fish, abundant on many parts of the Tasmanian coast, and familiarly known to the fishermen by the title of the " Bluehead." The second species to which I have to draw attention is the fish commonly known as the " Magpie Perch." It is not unfrequently exposed for sale in the Hobart Fish Market, and has been referred with some doubt by Mr. Johnston to the Chilodactylus gibbosus of Richardson.
