Recent dredgings and other excursions in connection
with the Tasnianian Field Naturalists Club, but more
particularly an extensive examination of the North-West
Coast by W. G. Torr, have introduced us to many species
not previously known from Tasmania. In addition, much
knowledge has been acquired respecting the distribution
of forms already recorded, so that the time seemed opportune
to bring out a new and up-to-date list, which we believe
will be of distinct value to students of this interesting
group. We have here increased the Tasmanian
list to 32 species, including two new ones. It will
be noticed that on comparing our list with previous ones,
several names disappear, either because we consider there
was a wrong identification, or because we cannot confirm
the record, believing that a mistake was made.
