Abstract

On entering on a revision of the Tasmanian freshwater
molluscs, the question naturally arises why should
this be necessary, seeing the great amount of attention
given to this subject by a number of distinguished
naturalists. The truth is that much overlapping
has occurred in previous work, creating many synonyms, partly through ignorance, or uncertainty as
to what previously described species really were, as they
were usually not figured. Again, too much stress was laid
on small variation in the erection of species, which variation
proved to be individual, and not specific.
