Abstract

The late R. M. Johnston, Government Statistician,
by his will bequeathed his natural history collections to
the Royal Society of Tasmania; and the portion containing
the recent and fossil mollusca is already at the Museum. The Council of the Society has kindly allowed me,
not only to carefully examine these collections, but also
granted me permission to have on loan some of the type
and other specimens, for the purpose of figuring them.
This I have now accomplished, and they will illustrate my
paper, which I hope may be of distinct value to those
who are, or may be, studying the Table Cape Molluscan
fauna.
