Abstract

During many years of observation among the Upper
Palaeozoic rocks of Tasmania I have made large collections of
fossils in different parts of the island. Among these I have
identified many forms, already described by Morris, M'Coy,
Dana, de Koninck, and other authors, as occurring in a similar
formation in New South Wales. There is a considerable
number of important fossils which I believe to be new to
science, and, as it is very desirable for purposes of reference
and classification that these fossils should be described, I have
ventured to submit a list of the fossils known to me as
occurring in Tasmanian rocks, together with provisional
descriptions of the spec1es deemed by me to be new to science. Includes list of upper palaeozoic marine fossils known to occur in Tasmanian rocks.
