Marine Mollusks of Japan

nrmS catalogue grew from the research incidental to the identifi- 
* cation of the mollusca procured by Mr. Frederick Stearns dur- 
ing two visits to Japan. A portion of the collection made in 1889- 
'90 having been submitted to the writer for identification, it was 
found to contain a number of new and interesting species, some of 
which were described and figured in the Proceedings of the Academy 
of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia for 189 J, and in the The Nauti- 
lus. A catalogue ot this collection (pp. 20, 1 plate) was prepared 
by Mr. Stearns, and widely circulated among naturalists. 

A much more extensive collection was secured by Mr. Stearns 
upon bis second visit to Japan, and it was found necessary to review 
so considerable an amount of conchological literature in its identifi- 
cation, that it seemed desirable to collate the references to Japanese 
mollusks subsequent to the date of Dunker's excellent work, Index 
Molluscomm maris Japonici, as well as those not contained in that 
catalogue, and, together with descriptions and figures of the new 
forms discovered by Mr. Stearns, to publish a new catalogue of 
Japanese marine mollusca. The present volume contains about 500 
species more than Dunker's Index, although a considerable number 
of forms enumerated by him are herein considered synonyms or are 
rejected from the Japanese list. 40 species and 8 varieties believed 
to be new are described, including some of which diagnoses have 
already appeared in the Nautilus, and the species of certain families, 
such as Patellidce, Fissureltidce, etc., are somewhat critically revised. 
In the families Rissoidce, Eulimidce and Pyramidellidic a con- 
siderable number of forms collected by Mr. Stearns remain un- 
identified. Although some of them are doubtless new, the literature 
of these groups has been so overloaded with Arthur Adams' des- 
criptions which do not describe, that intelligent work upon the 
Japanese forms is impossible. The literature of descriptive zoology 
furnishes but few instances of work more superficial and worthless 
than that of this industrious dilettante.

The work consists of three portions : a list of marine mollusks 
which have been stated to inhabit Japan from Yezzo to Kiushiu, 
with references to description or figures of most species, and enumer- 
ation of the special localities at which each species has been found 
by previous naturalists or by Mr. Stearns. This is followed by a 
catalogue of the Inland mollusks taken by Mr. Stearns in Japan ; 
and finally a list of mollusks of the Loo Choo group procured by 
Mr. Stearns is given. 

I have identified the specimens collected in Japan ; those from 
the Loo Choo Islands were identified partly by Mr. Stearns, partly 
by myself (see p. 160). 

Recent investigations have added no very important facts to 
the general conclusions of Lischke regarding the status of the 
Japanese mollusk fauna in comparison with the Indo-Pacific faunas. 
The percentage of species peculiar to Japan has been considerably 
increased, however, and probably will be further augmented ; 
although no doubt recent political events have added a considerable 
number of tropical species to what must hereafter be considered 
Japanese seas. 

The classification used in the following pages while not entirely 
that of any one of the manuals, it is hoped will be found convenient 
for reference. The current generic nomenclature has been revised 
in certain cases; and for perhaps the first time in the century, cer- 
tain Linnrean names, such as Lijua lima and Delphinula delphiimla 
have been restored to their rightful places. 

It may be noticed that some new specific names employed here- 
in resemble the names of certain localities or islands of the Japanese 
Empire; but we must here explicitly declare that between such 
specific and geographic names no necessary connection exists ; and 
the former, except where the contrary is stated, should be taken as 
mere arbitrary or meaningless words. They will, therefore, not be 
subject to change on account of modifications in the current mode 
of transliteration from Japanese to the Roman character, nor from 
other causes. 

Philadelphia, August, 1895. H. A. P. 


DURING 1889-'90, the publisher of this Catalogue spent nearly 
a year in Japan, and some weeks in China. The journey was 
in quest of health and the pleasure of travel. Much time was de- 
voted to making a typical collection of Japanese art work of many 
kinds. I had been, for some years before visiting Japan, much 
interested in its history, political evolution, and in the marvellous 
delicacy of many of its art products, and had studied and collected 
the latter with interest. 

The result was a collection of over fifteen thousand objects in 
metal, lacquer, pottery, bronzes, fabrics, etc. This collection has 
been catalogued, mounted and presented to the Detroit Museum of 

Being also interested in natural history, I attempted to make a 
collection of the mollusks of the country, commencing first with 
such species as I found in the markets of Tokyo and Yokohama, 
and finally employing an intelligent Japanese fisherman — Morita 
geto— who traversed the entire east coast from Tokyo, along Sagama 
and Saruga and the coasts of the Provinces Kii, Awa and Toza, 
along the north shore of the Inland Sea as far as Bingo, and, by aid 
of the fisherfolk, obtained nearly a thousand forms of marine life. 

An account by ]\Ir. J. E. Ives of the Echinoderms, Crustacea 
and Pycnogonida collected, will be found in Proc. Acad. Nat. Sci. 
Philadelphia for 1891, p. 210, plates YII-XII ; and some of the 
Mollusks are described and illustrated by Mr. Pilsbry in the same 
volume, pp. 165, 471, plates IV, XVII, XVIII, XIX. 

The Japanese fishermen, by the use of drag and dredge-nets, 
gather not only fish, but largely mollusks, working in water some- 
times as deep as thirty fathoms. 

The region visited lies between 83° and 36° north latitude, 
and 132° and 141° east longitude, on the east coast of the Japanese 
Islands. Here the Kuro-Shiwo or "Pacific Gulf Stream" flows 
north-easterly, and the presence of this warm current accounts, possi- 
bly, for the occasional finding of strictly tropical species. 



In December, 1891, I set out upon a winding journey around 
the world, first spending the winter on the Hawaiian Islands, where 
I made some collections of shells, thence proceeded to Japan, where 
the following summer was passed. Here I traveled more exten- 
sively than during my former visit, the itinerary covering almost 
the entire length of the Empire, from the Province of Satsuma in 
the south, to Sapporo, the capital of the Island of Yezzo, in the 

Profiting by the experience of my first visit, I availed myself of 
the assistance of coast-fishermen in collecting the rarer forms of 
mollusks, and, while the territory covered does not greatly exceed 
that of the earlier visit, much new material was obtained. 

My Japanese collector, Morita Seto, spent a year — 1891-2 — in 
the Loo Choo Islands, collecting shells. But, as the fauna of that 
Archipelago is more closely allied to that of the Indo-Pacific region 
than the fauna of the Japanese waters, the results of the expedition 
were not so valuable as anticipated. 

In conclusion it should be stated that I have spent an active 
business life as a manufacturing pharmacist, until circumstances 
permitted me within recent years to retire from active work in that 
profession, and devote ray advanced years to travel, and to at least 
a superficial study of natural history ; and hence I beg to be con- 
sidered only as an amateur in conchology, and the public will 
understand that whatever of scientific merit this volume possesses, 
is due to ray friend and editor Prof H. A. Pilsbry. 

Note: — Very many of the species enumerated in this Cata- 
logue, to which my name is attached as collector, may be had in 
exchange by conchologists and collectors. Upon application, 
printed lists of such duplicates will be forwarded. Many species of 
which but few specimens were obtained upon my first visit, were 
found more abundantly on the second.

Sepia hercules Pilsbry. PI. 1. figs. 1, 2. The Nautilus, YII, p. 144, April 2, 1894.^ 

Shell having the general form of that of S. esculenta Hoyle but 
more convex ventrally ; chitinous margin narrow ; dorsal surface 
tuberculate-rugose as in eseulenia, but more coarsely so, the posterior 
part having the tubercles very deeply separated, flat-topped, and 
leaning backward ; dorsal surface evenly rounded, with no trace of 
a median longitudinal rib. Ventral surface as in esculenta, but the 
striation is much closer although the shell is triple the size. Last loc- 
ulus has an index of 22. Inner cone well developed, its limbs aris- 
ing about one-third the length of the shell from the posterior end, 
gradually rising along the sides, po.steriorly reflexed and appressed 
on the outer cone, leaving below a narrow small cavity. The ante- 
rior edge of the inner cone does not form a shelf across the posterior 
end of the outer cone as is the case in esculenta, and the cavity is 
much smaller, shallower and narrower than in a specimen of esculenta 
155 mill, in length. Spine very stout, conical, its root excavated 
ventrally. Color, white in the middle, faint pink at the sides ; whit- 
ish beneath. 

Length 425 mill. ; greatest breadth 160 mill.; length of spine 19 

This species is the giant of the genus,the shell being about 16i inches 
long. It is allied to S. esculenta Hoyle, but differs as above indicated. 
The dorsal slope does not descend abruptly to the spine as in that 
species. Of /S. esculenta a good many specimens are before me col- 
lected by Mr. Stearns. They agree well with the " Challenger " 
specimens. The size of esculenta is moderately constant, shells seen 
by Hoyle, Appelloff and myself being from 155 to 163 mill, long 
(about 6J inches). 

A second specimen from the Luchu Is. exhibits the same char- 
acters throughout.

I have seen no Japanese specimens referable to this species. Per-

prove distinct from the true S. atra. 
Siphonaria sirins PiL^bry. PL VI. figs. 23. 24. 25. 26. 27. 2S. 

.Shell oblong, polygonal, low conical with subcentral, erect apex ; 
primary ribs all single, generally 7, strongly elevated and white ; inter- 
spaces wide, dark brown, radially finely ribbed. Interior brown- 


black, the larger ribs indicated by white rays ; siphon occupying a sin- 
gle rib, never a double one. Cavity with a white callus (rarely 
chestnut colored), the region of the muscle impression bordered 
with chestnut stains. Length 22, breadth 1 7-1 9, alt. 5 mm. 

Sagami, and Kashiwazaki, Boshiu, Japan (Frederick Stearns!). 

This species differs from S. atra Q. & G., eoreensis A. & R., and 
their allies in having the siphonal rib single and simple. It is prob- 
ably the species identified as S. atra by Dunker and other writers 
on Japanese shells. Several hundred specimens collected by Mr, 
Stearns agree in the characters above given. Not one shows any 
tendency to double the siphonal rib. 

Siphonaria cochleariformis Reeve. Conch. Icon., pi. 6, figs. 28 a, b. 

Koshinozaki, Boshiu (Stearns) ; Deshima (Dkr.); Nagasaki 
(Lischke). The specimens agree well with Reeve's figures, except 
that the entire interior is black-brown except for a narrow white 
border closely marked with dark at each rib interval. 

Siphonaria acmaeoides Pilsbry. PI. VI, figs. 19. 20, 21, 22. 

Shell oblong, nearly equilateral, but with excentric apex like S. 
radiata A. & R. (Zool. Samarang, pi. 13, fig. 2). The even surface 
hardly modified by the 9-16 low, wide ribs, between which it is very 
finely radially striated. Siphonal rib wide but low and inconspicu- 
ous. Apex spiral, bent down and appressed. Interior blackish or 
chestnut within the muscle impression, outside of which it is radially 
striped black and white, the siphonal channel extremely shallow 
and inconspicuous. Color outside whitish-buff, speckled and mac- 
ulated with brown, or whitish on the principal ribs, the intervals 
black-brown. Length 121, breadth 9^, alt. 3j mm. 

Prov. Boshiu, Japan (Frederick Stearns). 

This little species very closely resembles Anncea Heroldi in the 
general form and the coloration of the interior.

spire attenuated, the whorls very convex, almost angular, concave 
above and nearly smooth, appressed at the suture. Sculptured with 
numerous short vertical folds which do not extend on the body 
whorl below the level of the upper angle of mouth, and become 
obsolete on its latter half; and numerous subequal, crowded spiral 
cords throughout. Aperture nearly half the length of shell, long- 
elliptical above, passing into a long, open, straight canal below. 
Anal sinus wide and rather shallow ; outer lip gently arched for- 
ward. Alt. 53, diam. 15 mill.

Shell resembling D. jej^reysii Smith, but decidedly more attenua- 
ted. Whorls about 13, angular convex, concave above, buff, finely 
mottled all over with reddish-brown, purplish on the spire, especially 
between the folds. Sculptured with oblique longitudinal folds (11 
on penult, whorl) which stop abruptly at the shoulder and grad- 
ually decrease below ; spirals rather spaced, coarse and unequal, 
alternating in size, absent on the concave upper surface of the 
whorls; the surface between lirae and over the concave anal fasciole 
finely spirally striate. Aperture sub-rhombic, narrowed below, 
slightly over one-third the shell's length ; canal a little recurved. 
Anal sinus very deep, straight ; outer lip arched forward, with a 
distinct sub-basal sinus. Columella moderately calloused and nearly 
straight below, bearing a callous tubercle above. 

Alt. 53, diam. 18 mm. 

Alt. 36, diam. 11 mm. 

Djeffreysii, while allied to this, is far broader if specimens of the 
same size be compared. D. latismuata Smith has a wider, squarer 
anal sinus, with flaring posterior lobe of the outer lip. The shape 
of the sinus itself is different in D. lanceolata (Rve.) Martens. In 
some specimens the spiral lirse are much wider, flattened, and the 
folds more numerous. Inland Sea (Stearns).

Shell elongated, turrited, corneous-brown, the interstices of the 
latticed sculpture dark brown. Whorls 7, very convex, separated 
by deep sutures ; the earlier portion of spire attenuated. Sculpture 
consisting of strong, broadly rounded longitudinal folds (12 on last 


whorl, becoming obsolete on the base) crossed by narrow but strong 
spiral cords separated by intervals greater than their width, contin- 
uous over the longitudinal folds but stronger between them, in num- 
ber 14 on last whorl, 4 on penultimate whorl. Aperture contained 
2i times in length of shell ; outer lip thick, narrowly varixed out- 
side, having several rather strong teeth within ; anal notch deeper 
than wide, oblique, separated from suture by a thin callus only. 
Anterior canal very short. Alt. 61, diam. 2| mm.

The specimens collected by Mr. Stearns while agreeing })erfectly

stouter, less attenuated above and fuller in the body than a speci- 
men oi fabula before me from Mr. Marratt. The basal callus is white, 
or in one shell slightly brownish. Alt. 11'5, diam. 5 mm. 

I believe this quite distinct from 0. fulgurata.

Satsuma (Stearns). 

Shell like the type except that the nodules are reduced to short 
oblique waves somewhat as in Buccinum undatum, and the color 
outside is uniform chocolate-brown. Interior strongly lirate, dark 
brown with a pearly lustre. 

This seems distinct from any of A. Adams' species.

The specimens vary much in color, some being decorated with 
brown spiral lines, others streaked and maculated with chestnut. It 
is allied to S. fusoides Rv., but the spire is much longer. The 
canal is more recurved than in S. spadicea Rve., which is otherwise 
quite similar.

Kagoshima (N. P. E. E.). 
Siphonalia Stearnsii Pilsbry. PI. II, f. 1, 2. 

Shell fusiform, solid, brownish ; spire conical, shorter than the 
aperture, consisting of 8 convex whorls, which are finely spirally 


lirate, and closely and strongly plicate ; plicse becoming partly or 
wholly obsolete on the body-whorl, which is very indistinctly or not 
at all shouldered, and runs upward somewhat toward the aperture, 
causing a narrow, small posterior channel. Aperture shaped as in 
S. fmcolineata Pse. but wider, the inner lip smooth, its edge raised 
and free ; outer lip with a wide yellow internal border, inside of 
which it is thick, lirate and white. Anterior canal strongly re- 
curved, short. Alt. 46, diam. 25 mm. Oblique alt. of aperture 
29 mm. 

Allied to S. longirostris Dkr., but less elongated, with more 
strongly plicate spire and different aperture. I cannot see that any 
of A. Adams' un figured species agree with the specimens before me. 
The spire is longer and more plicated than in S.fusoides Reeve, and 
the canal more recurved.

General contour of the shell as usual, the spire elongated, base much 
contracted, canal strongly recurved. Color dirty buff, with some 


scattered maculseof brown, especially below sutures, and sometimes 
ill-defined girdles. Whorls 9, the earlier two smooth, glossy, con- 
vex ; the following five very convex, separated by deep sutures, 
sculptured with strong rounded longitudinal folds as wide as their 
intervals, about 11 to a whorl, these crossed by strong spiral cords 
separated by flat interspaces, about 6 on each whorl, becoming lower 
and more numerous below, wholly obsolete or nearly so on the latter 
two whorls of the 8hell. The lower 3 whorls are strongly angular at 
the shoulder, and on the last whorl the longitudinal folds are repre- 
sented by strong, pointed tubercles on the angle, which number 10- 
12 on last whorl, the latter fifth of which is free from them. Aper- 
ture nearly half the length of shell, livid within, the upper angle 
narrowly sinused as in Gantharus, basal canal strongly recurved. 
Outer lip thickened outside by a low, wide varix, submargined by 
short, close plicre within ; inner lip moderately calloused, bearing 
near its posterior termination a very strong, rounded nodule. Um- 
bilicus open ; siphonal fasciole defined above by a free laminar 

Alt. 51, diam. 26 mm. 

Alt. 43, diam. 21 mm. 

Japan (Stearns, 3 specimens). 

Distinguished from other species by the strong nodule on the 
inner lip near the posterior angle of aperture, defining a channel 
there. Although I have an impression that somewhere I have seen 
a specimen or figure of this species, I cannot now find that anything 
much like it has been described. A quite young specimen would 
probably resemble somewhat Euthria fuscolabiata E. A. Smith.

Nassa hypolia Pilsbry. PI. II, figs. 13. 14. 

Shell elongated, solid and thick, purplish-black with a peripheral 
brown or whitish girdle, not glossy ; becoming ashy on the spire and 
with age all over. Surface dull ; sculptured with numerous rounded 
longitudinal ribs, slightly curved, a trifle more prominent at the 
shoulder and not extending below the periphery, sometimes subob- 
solete on the body-whorl. No spiral sculpture, or a few faint cords 
at the base. Aperture less than half the shell's length. Outer lip 
with a low varix, thick, with five teeth within ; throat purple- 
black, showing the narrow light band, which on the lip spreads up- 
ward ; below it another light blotch on the lip. Columella with a 
■white or yellow callus below, roughened by a few weak folds, and 
with the usual posterior fold. Alt. 12'5, diam. 7 mm. Operculum 
oval with entire edge. 

Yesso (Stearns). 

The folds are coarser and extend further down than in luctuosa 
and succincta ; seviiplicata is more strongly varixed with different 
denticulation of the aperture ; teretiuscula differs in texture and 
•color. This species would have been included by Tryon in N. 
^aw(itosa judging from what he has considered synonyms of that spe- 
cies ; but I am by no means prepared to endorse such wholesale 
lumping of species as that in his monograph of Nassa.

Columbella (Atilia 1) pleurotomoides n. sp. PI. I, f. 6. 

Shell fusiform, slender, smooth except for slight growth-lines, and 
on base and anterior canal numerous spiral ]ir?e. Spire straight- 
sided, the sutures linear ; whorls 9, flat, the body whorl swollen in 
the middle, rapidly contracted below into a short anterior canal. 
Surface not shining ; light clear buff, showing under a lens close, 
faint, darker longitudinal lines, becoming flesh-colored on spire, the 
earliest whorls crimson ; body whorl encircled by two girdles of 
small, close, lunate or squarish brown spots, one on base, the other 
above the periphery and ascending the spire about midway between 
sutures. Aperture, small, narrow, contained nearly 22 times in 
length of shell, smooth and showing the dot-series within ; outer lip 
thin, sharp and simple, distinctly retracted above and arched for- 
ward in the middle. Columella sinuous, being prominent in the 
middle, concave above and below, without folds or teeth. Alt. 11, 
diam. Si mm. 

Banda, Boshiu (Stearns). 

The generic reference of this beautiful species is by no means cer- 
tain, as the outer lip lacks the teeth within characteristic of Atilia, 
and is distinctly retracted above. Numerous specimens were col-

Another synonym is P. prohlematica Baker (Proc, Rochester

ficult is the literature of this group of Purjmra that we do not ven- 
ture to say what the ultimate specific designation of the Japanese 
forms will be. There can be little doubt that all of Lischke's figures 


cited above belong to one species. The numerous specimens col- 
lected by Mr. Stearns show both of Lischkes' forms and many inter- 
mediate between them, as well as other mutations. When com- 
pletely adult there are a few widely spaced denticles within the lip, 
as in P. luteostoma, from which this form differs mainly in the black- 
ish substance of the shell, which is conspicuously shown upon the 
eroded tubercles and within the aperture. Connecting specimens 
between this form and luteostoma probably occur.

lacks varices ; two others have each a single varix near the begin- 
ning of the body-whorl.

Shell oblong with conical spire, the body-whorl smooth, shouldered 
above, the shoulder weakly nodulous ; suture broadly margined. 
Whorls of spire angulated and nodulous, spirally striated above the 
angle, the upper ones decussated by fine radial folds. Nucleus 
nacoid, consisting of 3i smooth, white, rounded whorls. Outer lip 
reflexed and spotted, having obscure traces of teeth below ; colum-

Japan (Hungerford, Stearns). 

Shell similar to 0. cancellata, but broader above, ponderous, the 
spiral cords not in the least prickly where they cross the longitudi- 
nal ribs ; the latter being stout and rounded, nearly as wide as the 
interspaces. Buff-white, maculated and obscurely two-banded with 
brown, speckled with the same, especially on the ribs and lip-varix. 
Aperture and columella as in cancellata, but sometimes lacking 
rugosities between the lip-teeth. 

Alt. 45, diam. 29 mm.; alt. of aperture 36 mm.

As Linnaeus included both the rough and snaooth forms in his 
citations and cabinet under the name cmris-dianae, it is evident that 
the present form must bear the name given by Perry, who first of 
binomial authors distinguished it. The well-known rough form 
with smooth mouth retaining Linnreus' term, of which S. striatogran- 
osiis Morch is a synonym. If the striation of the posterior sinus of 
the aperture proves racially constant, this form (C. Icon., f. 36 b; 
Thes., f. 98, 99) may be called var. lamarckii Gray. The other 
variety, melanostomus Swains., is generally recognized (C. Icon., f.

Saruga coast, on shells (Stearns). 

A large species, nearly always living in clusters, attached gener- 
ally to shells. The young form an irregular spiral, the whorls of 
which rest prone upon the base of attachment. As the tube increases 
in diameter it becomes carinated on the lower outer portion, or the 
part corresponding to the " shoulder " of the whorl in a regularly 
spiral gasteropod. At this stage the whorls become more laxly 
coiled, and when not too closely clustered, present the appearance of 


such planorboid forms as T. masier Dh., T. atra Rouss, etc. This 
stage is shown in the cluster pictured on pi. IV. The subsequent 
growth is erect and but slightly spiral, the tube generally contracting 
slightly in diameter, and cylindrical in form. The sculpture consists 
of narrow longitudinal cords at rather wide intervals, the spaces 
being occupied by a variable number of threads, (usually three) of 
which the middle one is larger. Irregular growth-lines crenulate 
the longitudinals. This sculpture is normally developed upon all 
sides of the tube. Upon the latter part of the free portion it is often 
subobsolete. The aperture is circular in adult shells, at right angles 
to the tube, and white within. The external surface is of a pale 
brown tint. No internal septa were found in numerous broken spec- 
imens; and although the shells were apparently alive when collected, 
no opercula were preserved in them, the absence of this organ being 
one of the characteristics of Thylacodes. 

The dimensions may be seen in the figures, which are of natural 
size. The diameter of the tubes at the aperture averages 13 mm. 

The embryonic shell, at the time it becomes attached, is bulimiform, 
glossy and smooth ; lying upon its side. The first whorl formed 
after attachment takes place is perfectly planorboid, showing the 
nuclear shell in the center. 

This species differs from Vermetus imhricatm Dkr. in lacking the 
imbricating growth-strije of that form. As figured by Dunker V. 
imbricatus is a planorboid form, like V. masier Dh., atra Rouss, etc., 
but it may possibly be an immature shell. 

T. medusce is apparently allied to V. polyphragmus Sassi, V. denti- 
jerus Lam. and V. novce-hollandioe Rouss, but it differs from them 
in having the sculpture developed over the whole circumference of 
the tube, not confined to its upper surface, or the part corresponding 
to the base of the shell in ordinary gasteropods, as it is in those spe-

epidermis, sculptured by slight fine growth-lines only. Spire elevated, 
acute; whorls 42, convex, separated by deep sutures, the last whorl 
with an acute pinched peripheral keel, which becomes obsolete at 
aperture, but extends up the spire immediately above the sutures. 
Aperture half round, outer lip well curved, inner lip about straight, 
retracted in the middle, thin ; umbilicus rather large and deep, ex- 
cavated, brown, and rather roughly longitudinally striate within, 
bounded by a very acute keel. Alt. 62, diam. 5 ram. ; apert. ob-

growth-lines and some irregular wrinkles. Spire elevated but ex- 
tremely obtuse; whorls 4, the latter li demarked from the preced- 
ing by a dark line, the earlier whorls forming a depressed-globose, 
low-spired embryonic shell. Last whorl keeled at periphery, the 
keel becoming obsolete toward the lip, not visible on the whorls of 
the spire. Aperture oblique-ovate, inner lip arcuate and retracted 
in the middle ; umbilicus moderate, pure white, deeply penetrating, 
surrounded by a very acute brown keel, excavated within, Alt. 5"6, 
diam. 4*2 mm. ; aperture, oblique alt. 36, width 2*5 mm. 

Tokyo Harbor (Stearns). 

A very obtuse shell, less transversely inflated than L. stenotornor- 
pha and with narrower umbilicus. This species is named in honor 
of Mr. E. A. Smith, whose contributions to our knowledge of Japan- 
ese shells have been of great extent and value. 


Lacuna stenotomorpha Pilsbry. PI. YIII, fig. .'5. 

Shell small, smooth, yellow, with a white band at periphery and' 
another below the suture ; depressed, oblique, with large, open, ex- 
cavated white umbilicus. Spire low, last whorl very rapidly enlarg- 
ing, descending in front, rounded at periphery. Aperture ovate, 
oblique, small ; outer lip well curved, inner lip nearly straight. 
Umbilicus deep, encircled by an acute keel, excavated on its inner 
surface. Alt. 4, diam. 4 mm. ; aperture, oblique alt. 3, width 2 mm. 

Tokyo Harbor (Stearns). 

In this species the form approaches Stenotis laxata. The last 
whorl is marked off from those preceding by a dark line, probably 
indicating the end of the larval stage. This is visible in the two- 
other species herein described, but I do not notice it in the North 
Atlantic or Californian Lacunas. This feature may indicate a sect- 
ion or subgenus, which may be called Sublacuna.

Jai)an Sea (Dkr.). 
Vanikoro japonica n. sp. Pi. I, figs. 5, 5. 

Shell globose^ about as high as wide, solid, white ; spire convex, 
low ; whorls 3, rapidly increasing, the last sculptured with many 
subequal spiral cords as wide as their microscopically spirally 
striated intervals, decussated by growth-wrinkles ; but at its origin 


showing three prominent keels. Young shells having three strong 
keels with latticed intervals, the pits oblong and very deep, base 
with two low spirals; when a diam. of 5 or 6 mm. is reached the 
lattice becomes more superficial, the primary keels decrease and in- 
termediate lirte appear. Aperture large, outer lip forming a half- 
circle, columella less arched, moderately calloused ; umbilicus pene- 
trating to apex, but a mere perforation at all stages of growth ; nar- 
rowly but distinctly grooved behind the columellar lip. Alt. 16, 
diam. 16 mm. 

Chikewa, Boshiu (Stearns). 

The narrow vertical pits of the earlier whorls are peculiar, and 
very unlike the square pits of the young V. cancellata. The latter, 
moreover, is not tricarinate in the young state.

thing. Mr. Stearns' largest specimen measures 160 mm. diameter.

Phasianella megastoma n. sp. PI. VIII, fig. 9. 

Shell imperforate, in shape like Ph. {Chromotis) neritina but the 
s[)ire longer and more pointed. Surface smooth, hardly shining; 
either dotted closely and evenly all over with red on a pale huffish 
ground, or having several spiral girdles of white spots, and a sub- 
sutural series of white flames ; the apex yellow or whitish. Whorls 
3^, very rapidly increasing, the last expanding toward the aperture. 
Aperture round-oval, very large, oblique; columella and parietal 
wall regularly arcuate, with a moderate deposit of callus. Opercu- 
lum white outside. Alt. 3*2, diam. 2'9 mill. 

Nemoto, Boshiu (Fr. Stearns). 

The extremely large aperture sufficiently characterizes this spe- 


Phasianella oligomphala n. sp. PI. VIII, fig. 8. 

Shell ovate-turrited, smooth, hardly shining, perforated. Dotted 
in spiral order with red on a pale ground, often having in addition 
some girdles of white spots, and very oblique snow-white stripes 
descending from the suture. Whorls 4i, well rounded, the sutures 
deep, the apex subacute. Aperture round-ovate, about half the 
shell's length ; inner lip separated from the body by a long, narrow 
umbilical fissure, which is much reduced in some shells. Operculum 
white outside. Alt. 4-35, diam. 2*8 ram.

The color patterns of this little Tricolta are similar to those of the 
preceding species, but it is far slenderer than that, and perforated.

It is not without some doubt that I identify these shells with 
Gould's unfigured species, but they agree with his short description 
as far as that goes. 

P. modesta gouldii n. var. PI. VI, fig. 31. 

Shell the shape of P. kochii Phil., clear red, showing under the 
lens dense microscopic redder spiral lines and toward the base some 
spaced red spirals with remote, white specks. Marked above the 
periphery with a few bold oblique stripes of snow-white ; a subsutural 
band mottled with blackish. 

This form occurs with the preceding, of which I consider it a 
variety. It is probably what Dunker lists as P. capensis. 

Dunker (Index, p. 127) reports Phasianella variegata, P.elongata 
and P. capensis from Japan, the last on Schrenck's authority. The 
first of these was perhaps Phasianella ( Orthomesus) modesta. The 
other two were incorrect identifications. The S. African species 
named are of the group of P. pulla, while the above Japanese forms 
belong to Orthomesus, as is shown by their spaced capillary lines.

Minolia Stearnsii n. sp. 

Shell more depressed than 3f. vitiliginea Mke., thin, shining, 
widely umbilicate ; densely and finely radially vermiculate with 
olivaceous on a pale ground above, usually with few or many radial 
dark clouds below the suture, and several narrow articulated, spaced 
spiral lines, the periphery lighter, often spotted ; base with paler 
vermiculate and articulated pattern. Surface closely and evenly 
sculptured with spiral strise throughout, with inconspicuous rather 
spaced oblique impressed lines, and between them very faint, close 
growth-strise which slightly crenulate the spirals. Whorls 5, very 
convex, rather flattened below the sutures, producing a blunt median 
angle on the whorls of the spire. Last whorl subangular at periph- 
ery and around umbilicus; the latter funnel-shaped, one-fourth the 
total diameter of the shell, white within and with distinct growth- 
lines. Aperture roundly subquadrate, oblique; columella slightly 
dilated above, straight in the middle, bluntly angular at base. Alt. 
6'2, diam. 10 mm.; var.: olivaceous replaced by brilliant rose color. 

Nemoto, Boshiu (Stearns). I separate this from the vitiliginea of 
Menke (see Philippi) on account of its more depressed form and 
wider umbilicus.

Corea Sea. This is hardly Japanese. The " T. instricta" re- 
ported from Satanomosaki by A. Ad. (Ann. Mag. N. H. (3), XIII, 
p. 143) can hardly be the real Euchelm instridus Gld., of which 
specimens are before me from New Caledonia and Viti Is. (see Man.

Kii coast (Stearns) ; Yedo, Nagasaki (Lischke). 

The following principal color patterns occur : 

(1). Entire surface uniform blue-blacks 

(2). Olivaceous, with short black and cream blotches below the 
suture, a continuous red band at periphery, bordered below by a 
white band. 

(3). Olivaceous-yellow, yellow, or pinkish-yellow, unicolored or 
marked like the preceding. 

(4). Very light drab, almost white, uniform or marked like num- 
ber 2. 

(5) Plumbeous, with a series of black and cream blotches below 
the suture, and a series of cream and dark plumbeous maculse at the 

Many specimens, especially immature ones, show a group of sev- 
eral spiral strise immediately above the periphery. 


TJmboniuni costatum Lesson. I'ils., Man. Conch., XI, p. 54, pi. 59, f. 34, 35. 

Kii coast (Stearns) ; Simoda, Hakodate, Tsu-Shiraa, etc. (Ad.) ; 
Nagasaki (Lischke). 

Very large specimens, measuring alt. 22, diam. 30 mm. The col- 
oration is very uniform, consisting of narrow radial stripes of buff 
and olive-bluish broken into a fine tessellation by the spiral 
grooves of the upper surface, the base with coarser radial stripes, 
sometimes interrupted ; umbilical callus purplish-pink. 

TJmbonium costatum var. superbum Gould. Lischke, J. M. C, II, p. 83, pi. 5, f. 

Nagasaki (Lischke) ; Kagoshima (N. P. E. E.); Inland Sea, Hizen, 
near Enoshima (Stearns). 

Very extensive suites of this form were collected by Mr. Stearns ; 
and a critical examination shows that there is really no character 
whatever separating them from U. costatum except size. The sub- 
sutural fasciole is sometimes smooth, but more often more or less 
tuberculate ; and specimens occur which are very diflferent to distin- 
guish from U. moniliferum. Mr. Stearns has assorted the forms into 
numerous color varieties which he designates by letters. The more 
notable of these are as follows : 

(1). Coloration as described above for U. costatum, the stripes 
above continuous or tessellated, periphery often with a white and a 
red girdle, (Nagasaki, Kii). (See Lischke, II, pi. V, f 20, 21). 

(2). Same pattern as above, but ground color orange, stripes faint 
olive; base without stripes, red or yellow. 

(3). Same as No. 1, but with wide blotch-like stripes at and below 
the periphery. (See Lischke, f. 18, 19). 

(4). Entire surface blue-black or purple-black, callus fleshy. 

(5). Ground color and subperipheral fasciole red, stripes close and 
dusky ; interstices between spiral cords pure white. This is the most 
remarkable and lovely pattern. The base is articulated, broadly 
striped or uniform. 

(6). Groundcolor almost white; stripes or tesellation very pale 
bluish or brown ; callus white or fleshy. (Inland Sea). 

(7). Stripes broad and red, on a yellow ground. 

(8). Upper surface with broad white zone. One specimen of this 
variety lacks spiral sulci, and has very convex whorls.

or light. (Kishiu). 

(2). Yellow, with light olive tessellation ; callus pink or dusky. 

(3). Ground color buff or white, with wide red stripes, sometimes 
reducing the light ground to mere spots; base with broad oblique 
stripes, or a subperipheral red girdle. (Kamakura).

The prominent specific characters of this form are its very large 
perforation which is siidde'nly dilated postenorly to double the width 
of its middle portion. The anterior part of the shell has several 
carinpe. In M. hiatula Sw., the hole is not thus dilated posteriorly, 
nor is it so in the various figures of Humphreys and Sowerby 
referred to above. Chemnitz reports the species from Japan. 

Macrosehisma sinensis A. Adams. PI. VI, figs. 6, 7, 8. 
Pilsbry, Manual of Coneh., XII, p. 190, pi. 59, f. 56-59. 

Tabu-Shima (Ad.) ; Neraoto, Boshiu (Stearns, twelve specimens). 

Shell oblong, the length slightly exceeding twice the breadth ; 
lateral margins slightly convex, subparallel, anterior margin well 
rounded, posterior margin more or less truncate, often emarginate. 
Anterior slope straight or slightly convex, more than half the length 
of the shell ; side slopes straight. 

Surface sculptured with close, fine radial stride, latticed by con- 
centric raised strife, which are much less obvious on old than on 
young shells; the anterior portion having about four very inconspic- 
uous low radial ridges. Color either (1) dotted, speckled and ob- 
scurely banded with black on a pale huffish ground, or (2) blackish 
at the sides, crimson in front and behind, or (3) crimson throughout, 
with some faint blackish rays. Posterior slope very short, about 
equalling the length of the eroded portion behind the hole ; gen- 
erally concave, or broadly guttered behind the hole. Perfora- 
tion wedge-shaped, with nearly straight sides, gradually diverging 
backward; very narrow in front, the back margin rounded, with 
an eroded tract behind it. Length of hole slightly less than one-third 
the entire length of the shell. Interior white with a bluish stain ; 
hole-callus well marked, its edge stained with olive-black at the 
sides. Peristome strongly curved upward behind, much less so in 
front, the lateral margins nearly level. 

Length 23 i, breadth lOs, alt. 6 mm. 

Length 23^, breadth 10s, alt. 6t mm. 

Length 21, breadth 9s, alt. 6 mm. 

This species differs from M. macrosehisma in the form of the per- 
foration, which is wider posteriorly but not abruptly dilated there.

Macroschisma Lischkei Pilsbry. PI. YT, figs. 1, 2, .3, 4, 5. 

Nemoto, Boshiu (Stearns). 

Shell oblong, the length less than twice the breadth ; lateral mar- 
gins convex, anterior margin well rounded, posterior margin bluntly 
rounded, subtruncate. Anterior slope straight, decidedly less than 
half the length of the shell ; side slopes straight. 

Surface sculptured with fine radial strife, alternately larger and 
smaller, finer on the forward half of the side slopes ; slightly decus- 
sated by growth lines. Color either (1) uniform black, or (2) 
■closely speckled with black on a buff ground, or (3) crimson with 
or without dusky rays. Posterior slope long for the genus, about 
one-fifth the length of the entire shell ; flattened or subconcave be- 
hind the hole, but not guttered. Perforation large, oblong, slightly 
narrower in front, and wider behind, with a very narrow eroded tract 
behind it. Length of hole contained two and one- half times in length 
of shell. Interior bluish-white, the hole-callus darker at the sides. 
When resting upon a plane surface, the peristome of the shell is 
seen to be very much elevated behind, and but little less so in front; 
the latero-basal margins strongly curved throughout. 

Length 17t, breadth 9, alt. 5 mm. 

Length 16, breadth 9], alt. 5 mm. 

Twenty-two specimens collected. This seems a very distinct spe- 
cies ; the position and proportions of hole, the long posterior and 
short anterior slope, and the strongly curved basal margins being 
especially characteristic, and unlike other described forms.

(plus A. eoncinna Lischke). 

Nagasaki (Lischke) ; Ojima, Yokohama and Hakodate (Stearns). 

A wonderfully variable limpet. In the large series collected at 
Ojima the typical schrenkii is represented by several varieties. Some 
have the color pattern shown in Lischke's figures, others a coarsely 
tessellated design ; the radial riblets being either smooth or finely 
beaded. Another variety is the condnna of Lischke (Jap. Meeres- 
Conch., II, pi. 6, f. 16) rounder in outline, more elevated, and all 
over finely beaded, and mostly unicolored blackish ; but many in- 


terniediate specimens between this and typical schrenckii occur. 
Still another form is smaller, more erect and elevated, with dull, tes- 
sellated or rayed exterior, and subobsolete radial strite. The speci- 
mens from Hakodate are rather small. All of the forms of A. 
schrenckii have the interior stained with green or blue.

Nagasaki and Deshima (Lischke) ; Kashi-azaki, Boshiu, Euo-

Great numbers of this species were obtained by Mr. Stearns. It 
is readily distinguishable from all forms of A. schrenckii by the 
brown-black and white (not blue or green) interior. Bunker's P. 
pygmcea is probably a synonym. 

A white variety, ray-variegated with reddish-brown, occurs at 
Tokyo Harbor and Kamakura (Stearns).

Patella lanx. The inside has a wide black margin, interrupted at 
the positions of the principal ribs with white. Spatula is either 
stained irregularly with brown, or has a large black patch and 
numerous dots, somewhat as in the var. sfellaris Q. & G.

The specimens from the Province of Kii are small. One is re- 
presented in figs. 1, 2, of pi. VII, Those from Ise are larger, agreeing 
well with Reeve's figures, and his type may very likely be from this 
region. As they grow older, the interior loses its black-brown spots. 
The localities " Australia " and " Chili " previously given for this 
species are false.

Pilsbry, Man. Conch., XIII, p. 131, pi. 66, f. 1, 2 ; pi. 67, f. 3. 

This is the large form from Bonin Is. (Stearns). It probably in- 
tergrades completely with nigrisquaviatus, but all the specimens I 
have seen have a larger central spatula. A very elevated individ- 
ual is figured.

Coast of Prov. of Kii (Stearns, 1890). This species is readily dis- 
tinguished from H. nigrisquamatus by the more anteriorly curved 
blunter apex, more convex posterior slope, etc. The central spatula 
varies from chestnut clouded in its depth with creamy to cream 
color clouded with brown. It is more solid than specimens oi nigri- 
squamatus of the same size.

Enoshima (Stearns) ; Hakodate (Stearns). 

This is a solider, more erectly conical species than H. amussitata 
or tor euma, and the apex is less directed forward. The coloration, 
while characteristic, varies greatly. The species is not known from 


any locality outside of Japan. It is a very abundant form at Eno- 
shiraa. The central spatula is generally deep brown with a lighter 
spot in the cavity of the apex, but sometimes it is orange (fig. 8) or 
even in rare cases creamy.

Even Lischke's splendid series of figiires do not exhaust the color 
variations of this Protean limpet. After examining several hundred 
examples I am unable to retain P. canussllata Rv. as a distinct spe- 
cies. The form I at one time called " nigrolineata var. divergens" 
is also merely a heavy, large toreuma.

(Lischke, pi. 8, fig. 10) was also collected by Mr. Stearns. 

[Note. Helcioniscus exaratus and Patella elypeaster have been 
reported from Japan, but on insufficient evidence ; a specimen of H. 
testudinarius L. was brought from Japan by Mr. Stearns, but it 
probably was not native there].

Japan (Dkr., Stearns). Some specimens are yellow outside ; but 
the prevailing form is yellow-stained white, with blue markings

believe this species a color variety of D. proximus Bertin.

It is doubtful whether the oriental species is really Linnaeus' form^ 
which may be the same as the West Indian species A. coccinea Mar- 
tyn. If this be the case, the East Asian Asaphis may be more prop- 
erly called A. rugosa Lam. 

Stearns procured specimens in Japan (exact locality unknown)^

Shell resembling the West Indian L. edentula, but thinner, more 
ventricose, beaks larger above the hinge-line, hinge straighter, the 
ligament-plate much shorter and narrower. Dorsallv the valves 


are more produced at each end, and the posterior dorsal angle espe-

Aspergillum giganteum Sowerby. PI. Ill, fig. 1. 

Valves large, irregularly oblong-trapezoidal, dilated toward the 
posterior end, very coarsely and irregularly concentrically corruga- 


ted, and showing under the lens a very fine, irregular wrinkling ; 
standing at an angle to each other of about 100°. Tube rough and 
sparsely covered with coarse sand and shells, swollen anteriorly, con- 
tracted behind the valves. Anterior end forming a mass of irregu- 
larly placed short tubes, among which pebbles, etc., are imbedded, 
and lacking any trace of a marginal fringe or rosette. Posterior 
€nd slightly larger than median part of tube, bearing two flounces. 
Total length 285 mm., diameter of median part of tube 27, diameter 
of tube at valves 50, diameter of tubule mass 55. Valves, antero- 
posterior length 27 mm., dorso-ventral 16 mm. 

Found at village of Goshoura, district of Amakusa, coast of Prov. 
Higo, (Kumamoto Keu) Japan. The original locality was simply 
Japan. Native name, Teppo-Kai (Gun shell). 

This specimen was procured by Mr. Frederick Stearns at the 
Third National Exhibition, Tokyo, 1890. It is evidently nearest 
allied to A. incertmn Chenu (111. Conch., I, pi. 4, f. 5, 6) but differs 
in the totally diverse shape of the valves, which are triangular and 
broader than long in that species, oblong and far longer than wide 
in this. Mr. Sowerby's specimen (see P. Z. S., 1888, p. 290) was 
larger, length 325 mm., and had 6-7 flounces. The species has not 
before been figured. 

What Dunker reports as fragments of a gigantic specimen of A. 
vaginiferum, is probably this species.

more abruptly truncated posteriorly,

wrinkles, the cuticle wriukled on posterior slope, and showing spaced^ 
inconspicuous radiating cuticular threads toward each end. Ante- 
rior extremity abruptly truncat9d ; posterior extremity rounded, 
slightly gaping. Interior white ; lithodesma large.

from Entodesma saxicoki of the same size. The lithodesma is as in 
JE. saxicola.

limasmithi Sowerby. Sowb., P. Z. S.. 18S8, p. 207, pi. 11, f. 12. 

Shell having the general outline and convexity of L. lima Linn,, 
thin but strong, slightly gaping anteriorly, entirely closed posteriorly ; 
beaks situated near the posterior' end of the king e- line ; cartilage pit 
very oblique; hinge area narrow. Anterior auricles extremely 
small, posterior auricles moderate, about as in L. lima. Surface of 
valves sculptured with strong rounded radial ribs separated by in- 
tervals of about their own width, and ivholly absent on convexity of 
the valves from the beaks nearly half the distance to basal margin. 
Toward the beaks the surface on each side of the smooth area is 
densely and finely radially striate, these strim subsequeritly uniting by 
twos or threes to form the coarse ribbing of the later growth. Ribs at 
the periphery 39 in number; lacking on auricles and on the con- 
cave face of the anterior slope. Dimensions : Height, from beaks to 
ventral margin 60 mm., length, anteroposteriorly, 46 mm., diameter 
25 mm. Collected in Japan by Air. Frederick Stearns in 1889-90. 
Originally described from Japan. Sowerby did not describe the 
peculiar sculpture in detail, hence the above description.

surpassing the measurements given by Thunberg. The length of 
the ligament area is proportionately greater than in smaller speci- 
mens. Measurements of four examples are as follows : 

Total length 443 mm.

Pinna lisohkeana Clessin. Conchyl. Cab., p. T.*?, pi. 28, f. J. 

Yokohama (Rolle coll.) ; Inland Sea (Stearns) ; Tokyo Harbor 

The smaller specimens collected on the western coast of the Inland 
Sea agree with Clessin's figure (Conchylien Cabinet, pi. 28, f. 1) ex- 
cept that the hinge-margin is less curved. The specimen figured by 
Clessin as the adult P. japonica (Conchyl. Cab., pi. 29, fig. 1) is in 
my opinion an adult lischkeana. Whether the true japonica of 
Hanley is the same as P. chevmitzii, or is the young of lischkeana, I 
am unable to decide. Specimens collected by Stearns in Tokyo 
Harbor agree with Clessin's figure (pi. 29, fig. 1). They measure, 
length 375, breadth 204 ram. On the latter half of the shell the 
prickly rays are wholly absent.

List of Land and Freshwater MoUusks collected in Japan by 
Frederick Stearns. 

Pyramidula (Gonyodiscus) pauper Gld. Tokyo (Stearns). 


Two genera only of Helicidce occur in Japan : Eulota, repre- 
sented by the sections Eulotella, Acusta, Euhadra, Pledotropis and 
jEgista, and Ganesella represented by G. (Satsuma) japonica and 
its allies. 

From alcoholic specimens collected by Mr. Stearns, the writer 
has been enabled to figure the anatomy of Euhadra qucesita, peliom- 
phala, brandti, etc., Pledotropis vulgivaga and Ganesella japonica 
(Man. Conch. [2], IX), and to demonstrate the true relationships of 
these forms hitherto unknown. By shell characters alone it is at 
present impossible to classify many of the small Helices of Japan 
and China. Their anatomy only can decide which species belong 
to Ganesella, which to Eulota. Some large forms, such as Helix 
largillierti, papilliformis and Stearnsii are of equally dubious affini- 
ties. Altogether the Helix fauna is very closely allied to that of 
middle and northern China, but is poorer in variety of types. The 
Euhadra group is its most characteristic element. Cathaica, Pseud- 
iherus and other Chinese Eulota sections are absent, as are Camcena 
and Plectopylis; and 3Ioellendorffia, a group allied to Helicodonta 
in shell features, but possibly belonging near Chloritis, is another 
characteristic type of southern China wanting in Japan.

Helix (Eulota f) blakei Kobelt, Conchyl. Cab., p. 673, pi. 192,

The type lot of this species is preserved in the museum of Cor- 
nell University, and consist of three specimens: the type drawn on 
pi. I, figs. 7, 8, 8 ; a smaller specimen broken above, pi. I, fig. 3 ; 
and a young shell. 

The larger shell is slightly abnormal in having the last whorl 
deeply descending on its last half, owing to a slight fracture. There 
are 6 whorls, the earlier two forming the nepionic nucleus, apex ob- 
tuse ; those following are convex, with moderately deep sutures, 
showing slight growth wrinkles and close minute spiral, wavy im- 
pressed lines, which are well developed over the whole surface, and 
not different from those of E. j^eliomphala in fineness and spacing. 
Umbilicus moderate, about one-eleventh the diameter of the shell, 
rather more open inside than in peliomphala, half covered by the 
expanded columellar lip. Alt. 19, diam. 28 mm. 

The smaller specimen figured differs in the less descending last 
whorl, less oblique aperture, less covered and larger umbilicus, 
which is between one-eighth and one-ninth the diam. ; alt. — , diam. 
26 mm. Both show a very slight, hardly noticeable angulation of 
the periphery at the origin of the body whorl. The color is a uni- 
form pale corneous-buff', lip white. 

The species is very nearly allied to Eulota peliomphala, but seems 
to be specifically distinct. Kobelt misquotes the reference to Cal. 


Acad. Proc, as well as the name of this species. We are indebted 
to Prof. Gilbert H. Harris, of Cornell University Palseontological 
Department, for the opportunity of figuring these specimens.

Ganesella stearnsii n. sp. PI. I, fig. 4. 

Shell imperforate, globose-turbinate, higher than wide, thin, straw 
colored, with a peripheral brown line visible above suture on penul- 
timate whorl; surface smooth to the eye, but under a lens showing 
very minute crowded spiral lines as in Eulota nipponensis, but rather 
less distinct. Spire high, with convex outlines; whorls 7t, very 
convex, flattened and arcuate-striatulate below the sutures ; the last 
rounded at periphery, somewhat descending in front ; base convex, 
impressed in the center. Aperture somewhat oblique, semilunar, 
white within ; outer lip arched, slightly expanded, a trifle thickened 
within ; columella straight, vertical, narrow, deeply inserted, hardly 
expanded at the insertion, its edge expanded below, reflexed and 
closely appressed above in a very thin glaze over the axial region. 
Alt. 29,diam. 24 i mm. 

Mt. Hie, Hiesan, near Kyoto (Gaines). 

This is an extraordinary species, recalling H. sphceroconus of 
Formosa and H. jxipilliformis of Nippon. The former is most nearly 
allied, but differs in the flatter whorls, etc. Kobelt's species has 
flatter whorls (" convexiusculi ") and a more slanting columella, etc 
Whether these species belong with japonica Pfr. in Ganesella, or 
are Euhadras allied to myoviphala, remains to be decided by ana- 
tomical research. 

The name need not be confused with Helix sfearnsiana Gabb, a 
species of Epiphragmophora.

List of Mollusca in the Collection of Frederick Stearns 
FROM the Middle Loo Choo Islands, with Descriptions of 
New Species. 

The species listed below were collected for Mr. Stearns by Morizo 
Seta during 1891, 1892. Part of them were determined by Mr. 
Stearns, part by Mr. Pilsbry, the latter being indicated by an 
asterisk (*) following the species names. 

In this list the name Yaeyama Jima (" many-peaked island") is 
used for the largest of the middle Loo Choo group, often known as 
Okinawa. We believe the same term has also been applied to 
another island of the group. 

A list of raollusks from the middle Loo Choo Is. has been pub- 
lished by Dr. 0. Bottger (Nachrichtsblatt des Deutschen Malako- 
zoologischen Gesellschaft, 1892, p. 153). A recent general account 
of the physical and political features of the group may be found in 
The Geographical Journal, V, April, May, June (London, 1895) by 
Professor Basil Hall Chamberlain, of the Imperial University of 

The most remarkable diversity exists in the etymology of the 
name of these islands, but the form " Loo Choo " or its phonetic 
equivalent " Luchu " seems preferable for English speaking peoples. 

The malacological fauna of this chain of islands seems to be mod- 
erately homogeneous as far as known.

Trocliomorpha fritzei Boettger.* PL X, figs. 9, 10, IL 
Bttg., Nachrbl. D. M. G., 1892, p. 160. 

Dr. Boettger's excellent description of this species leaves nothing 
to be desired. It is remarkable for the acute keel encircling the 
umbilicus. The specimen figured is from the same island where the 
types were originally found, Okinawa or Yaeyama ; it measures : 
alt. 6, diam. min. 20, diam. maj. 22 mm., being slightly larger than 
Boettger's types. 


Ganesella largillierti Philippi.* PI. X, figs. 12, 13, 14. 

Reported by Largilliert from the Loo Choo Is., and also included 
in Boettger's list. There are three color varieties: 

Var. immaeulata Ad. & Rv. (PI. X, fig. 12). Pale, almost white 
above, with a yellowish-green sutural margin and base ; apex white. 
(C. Icon., f. 420). 

Var. eucosmia Pils. (PI. X, fig. 14). Body whorl begirt with dark 
chestnut zones ; apex white or pinkish. Conf. Smith, P. Z. S. 1887, 
p. 317. 

Var. zacosmia Pils. (PL X, fig. 13). Body whorl having a black 
band immediately above the periphery, fading into rich reddish- 
chestnut toward the suture ; a white or yellow band below' periphery, 
bordered by a black zone below, the middle of the base yellowish- 
chestnut or reddish-chestnut, apex purple. The coloring of this 
variety is wonderfully rich for a Satsuma. 

All of the above varieties collected on Yaeyama Island. 
Eulota (Euhadra) yaeyamensis Pilsbry. PI. IX, figs. 1, 2, 3. 

Shell sinistral, perspectively umbilicated, depressed, thin but 
rather solid, light brown, with a supra-peripheral brown line. Sur- 


face irregularly wrinkle-striate, and in places showing an excessively 
fine, superficial spiral striation. Spire low conoidal, composed of 6 
convex, slowly widening whorls, the last nearly twice as wide as the 
preceding, a trifle descending in front, rounded at the periphery and 
beneath. Aperture oblique, wide lunate ; peristome flesh-tinted, 
narrowly expanded and subreflexed, and slightly thickened within, 
dilated at the columellar insertion. Alt. 17, greater diam. 27j, 
lesser 23 mm. 

Yaeyama (Okinawa) Island, Loo Choo group (Frederick Stearns). 

This species is apparently most nearly allied to the Chinese H. lati- 
labris Mlldflf., but the umbilicus is more open, the lip narrower, 
aperture more oblique, etc. The umbilicus is wider and more open 
than in H. quoesita. 

Another specimen is smaller (alt. 15, greater diam. 24, lesser 
diam. 20} mm.), and straw-colored, with the usual dark girdle. 

Eulota (Euhadra) quaesita Desh. Yaeyama. 

Eulota (Euhadra) mercatoria Gray. PI. X, figs. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. 

Yaeyama I. (Stearns, 29 specimens). 

Of this species I believe H. caliginosa Adams & Reeve (Voy. 
Samarang, Moll., p. 62, pi. xvi, fig. 6) to be a synonym. The local- 
ity " Mindanao " is, if I am right, probably incorrect. The species 
shows the same great range of variability that is characteristic of 
the Japanese Euhadras. 

Figure 4 represents a large specimen uniform blackish in color 
except for slightly marked light bands above and below the periph- 

Figure 6 is the lightest specimen seen, being of a clear yellow tint 
with a dark line at periphery. It is light below the sutures, like 
the type of caliginosa. Figures 1, 2, 3 represent an average speci-

tinctly carinated in front, as are some other stunted specimens of the 

All gradations of form, size and coloring between these selected 
specimens are represented in the series secured by Mr. Stearns. 

Eulota (Euhadra) connivens Pfr. 

Yaeyama Island (Stearns). 

This species varies from 17^ to 27 ram. in greatest diameter, and 
shows much mutability in the degree of depression of the spire. 


Euiota (Acusta) despeota Gray.* PI. X, figs 7, S. 


The shell varies in color from yellow or straw-colored with nearly 
white aperture, to purplish-red with fleshy-purple aperture. 
Euiota (Aegista) oculus Pfr.* (typinmna A. & R.). Yaeyama. 

Adult specimens vary from 19 to 27 mm, diameter. They agree 
well with the figures of H. typinsana Adams & Reeve, Zool. ' Sam- 
arang,' pi. xv, fig. 3. 

Euiota (Aegista) vermis Reeve.* PI. IX, figs. 7, 8, 9. 

Yaeyama (Stearns). 

Many examples of this splendid species were obtained. It is 
notable for the depression of the inner whorls, which are frequently 
Euiota (Pleototropis) mackensii Adam« & Rve.* Yaeyama. 

About 75 specimens of this magnificent species were secured by 
Mr, Stearns. They are very large, from 34 to 39 mm, diameter, 
varying in color from light straw-colored or greenish-yellow to dark 
reddish-chestnut. One of these is figured in Man. Conch, (2), IX 
pi. 64, fig, 16-17. 
Euiota (Pleototropis) elegantissima Pfr.* 

Yaeyama, (Stearns, 17 specimens). 

Perfectly fresh shells show a fringe of long, delicate hairs at the 
periphery, and along the suture of the last whorl, 


Clausilia (Stereophaedusa) valida Pfr.® 

Clausilia (Stereophaedusa) Stearnsii Pilsbry. PI. I, fig. 12. 

Shell elongated, regularly tapering, the next to the last and the 
last whorl widest, the latter hardly contracted below ; moderately 
solid, closely, lightly striated, the striae wanting on the earlier 
whorls, more distinct and spaced on the latter part of the last whorl. 
Color opaque purplish-brown. Whorls 12-13. but slightly convex, 
separated by a shallow, simple suture. Aperture contained 4? to 
4i times in length of shell ; peristome reflexed, whitish, slightly 
thickened, not adnate ; superior lamella strong, extending to the 
lip-edge ; inferior lamella deep-seated, parallel to the superior, in- 
visible from the front ; subcolumellar lamella extending to lip-edge, 
bounded by grooves : palatal plicae two, the upper one long, second 
rather short, with a thin white subvertical lunella below it, which is 
strengthened below into a low bar. 


Alt. 31, greatest diameter of last whorl above aperture 5 mill. 

Alt. 26, greatest diameter of last whorl above aperture 5 mill. 

Yaeyama (Okinawa), Loo Choo Is. (Fr. Stearns). 

Believing this species to be new, I sent examples to Prof Dr. O. 
Boettger, the great authority on these shells, and received the fol- 
lowing emphatic confirmation of my opinion : " Die Clausilia von 
Okinawa ist ohne jeden Zweifel n. sp. Es ist eine Stereophcedusa 
und steht in der Mitte zwischen jiV/poHica Crosse and hrevior v. Mts."^ 

No similar form has hitherto been reported from the Loo Choo 
group, the nearest allies of the species being Japanese. It is named 
in honor of Mr. Frederick Stearns of Detroit, who has contributed 
so largely to our knowledge of the Japanese fauna. The specimen* 
vai'y considerable in length, but not in other characters.

within the pallial impression most minutely roughened, outside of 
the pallial impression polished and shining. 

Length 80, width 74, diara. 40 mm. 

Length 50, width 40^, diam. 241 mm.

Corbicula sp. undet.* Yaeyama. 
Cyrena fissidens n. sp. PI. VIII, figs. 5, 6. 

Shell resembling C. sinuosa as figured by Clessin (Conch. Cab., 
pi, 45, f. 1), but the posterior lateral tooth and corresponding pit 
much slender and somewhat longer, the posterior cardinal tooth in 
right valve split by a sulcus much broader than the space between 
the posterior and the next adjacent cardinal teeth. Valves orbi- 
cular, very convex, lightly wrinkle striate, and covered with a black 
cuticle. Posterior slope depressed, with a radiating wide and shal- 
low furrow, rendering the margin slightly emarginate. Dorsal, 
anterior and basal margins well rounded ; posterior margin obliquely 
subtruncate. Length 86, breadth 77, diam. 49 mm. 

Yaeyama Is., Loo Choo group. A single specimen collected. 

Cyrena luchuana n. sp. PI. IX, figs. 4, 5. 

Shell large, inequilateral, oblong, the anterior end short, broadly 
rounded, posterior end long, produced, and squarely truncated ; 
basal margin gently arcuate, dorsal margin narrowly rounded at the 
beaks, the anterior slope short and nearly straight, posterior slope 
long, rectilinear. Valves strong, convex, the posterior dorsal area 
flat or concave, bounded by a blunt angle, another obtuse angle 
extending from beaks to lower-posterior extremity. Interior white, 
stained with buff-olive on the hinge. Cardinal teeth bifid ; ante- 
rior lateral very short and strong ; posterior lateral long, remote 
from cardinals. Cuticle dull brown, with a yellow under color, ir- 
regularly wrinkle-striate, laraellose behind, and less so over the 
whole disk. Length 94, breadth 72, diam, 47 mm. 

Yaeyama Is., Loo Choo group (Frederick Stearns). 


Cyrena yaeyamensis n. sp* PI. VIII, fig. 7: pi. IX, fig. 6. 

Shell shorter than the preceding, being less produced posteriorly, 
the posterior surface not so distinctly angular, posterior truncation 
less marked ; anterior lateral tooth not so sliort. Anterior dorsal 
slope of hinge line straight, posterior dorsal slope slightly convex. 
Color and sculpture as in luchuana, except that there is usually 
some oblique corrugation of the posterior slope. Length 75, breadth 
63, diam. 36 mm. 

Yaeyama Is., Loo Choo group (Frederick Stearns). 

This may prove to be a form of Cyrena papua, or of C. buschii 
Phil., of China, but it is more triangular, with the posterior margin 
more produced.

Haminea binotata n. sp. 

Shell cylindric-oval, hardly wider below, truncated above, rounded 
beneath, thin, but rather solid, ruddy-corneous, with a small opaque- 
white spot at each end, that at apex bounded below, that at colu- 
mella, above, by an opaque orange or reddish tract, appearing only 
on the latter part of the whorl. Surface polished, with excessively 
fine and close spiral stria, and rather coarse growth wrinkles. 
Aperture rather narrow, moderately enlarged below. Outer lips 
rising slightly above the vertex, but by no means high-arched. Col- 
umella concave, short, with a lunate, reflexed, but free, not adherent, 
flange, but not fold. Apex closed or subperforate. Alt. 11, diam. 
7 mm.
