Abstract

In this paper I have added eighteen species to our
list, which have been described by various authors from
Australian or New Zealand sources. The occurrence of
three more New Zealand species is interesting; but especially
so is that of a large form of Pecten, taken living in
100 fathoms off Cape Pillar, and which was described from
fossil material by the late Professor Tate.
I also describe eight species, which appear to be new
to science, and are the results of various dredging excursions.
They do not present any great novelty to our
previously known fauna. I have drawn the illustrations
under the camera lucida from the type specimens, which
will be presented to the Tasmanian Museum.
