Abstract

It is known to all workers in Australian Conchological
Science that the late J. E. Tenison-Woods, during the years
1875 to 78, described a large number of Tasmanian Marine
Shells in the proceedings of this Society.
His species are usually fairly well described, but he published
no figures, and with a few exceptions the specimens he
used were not marked as types. Includes illustrations.
