Abstract

Among several microscopic shells taken by Mr. A. U. Henn on stones at low water in Little Manly Cove, near Sydney, one attracted our special attention. The finder gratified the writer by placing the novelty in his hands for study, and on learning the result thereof has generously presented to the Australian Museum the most perfect of the three specimens obtained, which constitutes the subject of the present communication.

The long narrow aperture was contrasted in turn with every involute shell figured in Pilsbry's Monograph or the Order without matching it. Then it occurred to me that those features of the thickened lip, etc., in which the new form departed from the plan of Cylichna, Tornatina, and so on, were all characteristic of Ringicula, whose very different outline had not at first invited attention.
