Abstract

The subject of this communication, which has long been
known as Bithynia, or Tatea huonensis, though another specific
name has priority of fourteen years, has hitherto been handed
about from genus to genus without finding a resting place.
For some years past I have been convinced of the incompatibility
of its reference to those families under which it has been
placed its location under Rissoininae was the first step which
led me to its present classificatory position in the genus
Eatoniella.
The main portion of this essay was written twelve years
ago, but the desire to fully work out the anatomical characters
has always been my plea for postponement of publication

now, however, the opportunity of addressing the conchologists
of Tasmania, who have most materially contributed to the
bibliography of the species, cannot be resisted, though further
study in the direction indicated is still very desirable.
