Abstract

During the last two years I have been able, through the kindness of the Director of the Taronga Zoological Park and the help of the staff of the Zoo Aquarium, to study and make observations upon Mollusca, particularly sea-slugs and sea-hares, living there in captivity. This has helped me considerably in identifying or describing material, as the animals of both these groups mentioned are liable to undergo a severe change in colour and form in preservative, and unless some record of these characters is made when the animals are alive, later research work on them may prove very difficult.

My thanks are, therefore, due to those who have helped me in this way, and I hope as a result of the opportunities afforded me, and with the aid of the material in the Australian Museum collection, to publish papers dealing with these two groups, so common in Australia yet so much neglected, the sea-slugs and the sea-hares.
