Abstract

In no department of nature is the adaptation of our systems
to the advanced state of knowledge become more imperative
than in the elucidation of the Testaceous Molluscae. The
number of species discovered since the days of Linnaeus
are probably as 1 to 60, and every day fresh novelties are
coming to light, requiring new divisions, new names, and
new alterations in our system to make these novelties
intelligible.
