Abstract

The only species of the section Vola, inhabiting New
Zealand-waters, is generally known under Gray's name of
P. laticostatus, to which is referred P. Novae Zelandiae, Reeve,
as a synonym; but neither names should be employed,
inasmuch as the first is pre-occupied by a Lamarckian species
fossil in Pliocene Strata in Italy, and the second by another
New Zeahtnd species, established by Gray.
Eastern Australia, Tasmania, and South Australia have
each a species of Vola, which has been confounded with that
belonging to New Zealand.
The specific differences between these species may now be
detailed as follows: -
P. LATICOSTATUS is distinguished by its broad, flat, smooth
ribs with perpendicular sides, two and one-third times broader
than the flat furrows.
P. MERIDIONALIS has the ribs convexly depressed, concentrically
lamellose, and with 1, 3, or more radial sulcations;
the furrows are concave, and as wide or a little wider than
the ribs.
