When, in August, 1909, the Harbour Trust were replacing
the piers of Hobart, I took advantage of the opportunity
to examine the old piles as certain of them were
lifted from the water.
There were four species of interest; with a fifth taken
on a Field Naturalists' Club expedition down the river.
1. Blennius tasmanianus, Rich.
2. Clinus persipicillatus, Cuv. and Val.
3. Tripterygium clarkei, Morton.
4. Cristiceps australis, Cuv. and Val.
5. Trachinops caudimaculatus, McCoy.
Descriptions of the species. All twenty four specimens represented in the above notes will be additions to the Tasmanian Museum.
