Definiton of a new fossil Chiton, Pseudo-ischnochiton, n. gen.
The above generic name is proposed provisionally for
the reception of a new fossil Chiton which I am describing
under the name Pseudo-ischnochiton wynyardensis; which
species I designate as the type of the above new genus.
Introduction.-Mr. Francis A. Cudmore, to whose earnest
collecting we are indebted for so many discoveries in Fossil
Mollusca, has placed in my hands for description a single
median valve of an undescribed fossil Chiton. It is quite
unique in several respects.
locality-Table Cape, Wynyard, Tasmania; Tertiary
