Abstract

Description of Lampris Luna. This very interesting specimen, the first
on record of having been captured in Australia, was forwarded
to the Museum by Mr. Alfred Lovett on December
18th, 1895. Mr. Lovett states that it was found washed up
on the beach near Port Arthur, and weighed 130lbs. Unfortunately
the crows had picked and destroyed one side.
