Abstract

When consulting, recently, the British Museum Catalogue
of Lizards, I found that about eighteen species or varieties
were attributed to Tasmania, whereas only about five species
are admitted by local authorities. This impressed on me the
fact which I had previously seen stated, that our natural
history collections are, in some respects, still very incomplete.
