Abstract

Having occasion some time ago to compare certain Tasmanian
fishes with their New South Wales representatives, I
applied for assistance to Mr. Alexander Morton, Curator of
the Tasmanian Museum, Hobart, who, with a commendable
promptitude and liberality which, with advantage to Australian
biology, might be well imitated, forwarded unreservedly
a number of the required species, with the
suggestion that I should embody the result of my researches
in the form of a paper to the Royal Society.
