Abstract

In 1870, the late Mr. Charles Moore, of Bath, England, recorded 1 as a West Australian Oolitic species, Lima proboscidea, Shy., but he neither described nor figured the shell. Less than three years previously, the late Rev. W. B. Clarke did the same from information supplied him by Mr. Moore.2 As it is important that all species common to the stratified deposits of this Continent and other parts of the world should be accurately figured, quite as much as those purely endemic, for the information of Australian students of Geology, I take the opportunity in the present instance of effecting this through examples of this shell having passed into the possession of the Trustees.
