Abstract

The animals which I am about to describe belong to the
crustaceous genera, which have been placed by Muller,
Latreille, and later writers in the great division of the
Entomostraca. My attention was directed to the search
for them by reading the admirable memoir of the British
Entomostraca, (by Mr. Baird), published in 1849 by the
Ray Society. As the forms and various particulars of
the British species have been so fully detailed in that work,I shall endeavour, in describing the Australian species, to follow the example of so able a master.
