Abstract

In the year 1887 Mr. C. F. Ancey, in his descriptions of new genera and sub genera of the Helicidae, published in
the Conchologists' Exchange, Vol. ii., p. 22, defined and
named a sub genus of Endadonta from the Caroline Islands
under the name of Brazieria. Mr. W. P. Petterd, in his
contributions for a systematic Catalogue of the Aquatic
Shells of Tasmania in the Proc. Roy. Soc, Tasmania, p. 76,
1888, defined and named a new genus of the family
Amnicolidae under the name of Brazieria. Mr. Ancey's name
having priority, I take the pleasure of re-naming the aquatic
Tasmamian genus after my very esteemed friend, correspondent,
fellow voyager and companion, Mr. William Frederick
Petterd, of Launceston, Tasmania.
