Having collected many specimens of the genus Unio
inhabiting the northern rivers of Tasmania, during the last
seventeen years, more especially those found in various parts
of the South Esk Eiver, I have often been much impressed
with the extreme variability of form and colour exhibited by
different individuals. This is more particularly remarkable
if specimens marking different stages of growth are compared
with each other. Includes illustrations.

In 1843 the Horticultural and Botanical Society of Van Diemen's Land was founded and became the Royal Society of Van Diemen's Land for Horticulture, Botany, and the Advancement of Science in 1844. In 1855 its name changed to Royal Society of Tasmania for Horticulture, Botany, and the Advancement of Science. In 1911 the name was shortened to Royal Society of Tasmania.
