Abstract

I purpose in a series of papers revising the somewhat large
amount of work that has already been done, recording
omissions, and describing newly discovered species and
varieties of the fresh water shell-bearing mollusca of this
island, preparatory to the compilation of a systematic
catalogue in which the groups will be defined, the specific
characteristics explained and geographical distribution
recorded. Such a catalogue carefully criticised with the
necessary bibliography will, I think, supply a desideratum
much required by the general collector and may also be
of service to the more philosophical student. Includes illustrations.
