Abstract

The earliest record of Bonellia in the South Pacific is that by Professor Haswell who, in 1885, reported what he believed to be B. virdis from Neutral Bay, Port Jackson; noting at, the same time that instead of inhabiting narrow fissures in rocks it was found under small stones just above the limit of low water. Anatomically his specimens were said to be identical with B. viridis, except with regard to the reproductive organs which, however, were immature.
