Abstract

In the course of a critical examination of various Mollusca from Port Jackson, specimens of the only Pholas reported thence passed under review. This species has hitherto been accepted as P.. similis by all writers and collectors who have occupied themselves with the marine mollusca of our coast. This identification appears to have originated with G. F. Angas, who in his " List of additional Species of Marine Mollusca to be included in the .Fauna of Port J ackson and the adjacent Coasts of New South Wales," enumerates as species 93 ;- Barnea similis. Pholas similis, Gray
