Description of fossils found in the neighbourhood of Hobart. Fourteen species
have already been noted in my recent work on the Geology of
Tasmania.With some degree of confidence, the most
typical of each group of fossils were selected. By this means a large
number of variable specimens has been reduced to six species, all of which I have
been able, with some degree of confidence, to refer to types of
well-known fossils occurring with many of their associates in
rocks of the same age in Europe. Fairly good photographs
have been taken of these, and the following are the determinations
which I have been able to arrive at.
Includes photgraphs of fossils. Includes illustrations of Tasmanian Brachiopods.
