Abstract

In the Memoirs of the Australian Museum, No. 2, "Lord Howe Island," a sketch will be found on pp. 22 - 30 of the molluscan fauna of the island, illustrated by plates 4 and 5, which were, by an unfortunate accident, reversed. Stress of professional duties has prevented Mr. Brazier from completing this outline by detailed descriptions of the species there enumerated, and, greatly to the disadvantage of conchological science, that portion of the work dealing with fluviatile and terrestrial shells is now undertaken by the present writer.
