This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you.

public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine

use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner

The prefiCDt series, entitled ** SmithsoDian Miscellaneons Col- 
lections," i|iQteDded to embrace all the poblications issued directly 
bj the Smithsonian Institution in octavo form ; those in qaarto con- 
Btitnting the " Smithsonian Contribntions to Knowledge." The 
qoarto series includes memoirs embracing the records of extended 
original investigations and researches resulting in what are be- 
lieved to be new truths, and constituting positive additions to the 
snm of human knowledge. The octavo series is designed to con- 
tain reports on the present state of our knowledge of particular 
branches of science : instructions for collecting and digesting facts 
and materials for research : lists and synopses of species of the 
organic and inorganic world : museum catalogues : reports of ex- 
plorations: aids to bibliographical investigations, etc., generally 
prepared at the express request of the Institution, and at its 

The position of a work in one or the other of the two series will 
sometimes depend upon whether the required illustrations can be 
presented more conveniently in the quarto or the octavo form. 

In the Smithsonian Contributions to Knowledge, as well as in the 
present series, each article is separately paged and indexed, and 
the actual date of its publication is that given on its special title- 
page, and not that of the volume in which it is placed. In many 
cases, works have been published, and largely distributed, years 
before their combination into volumes. 

While due care is taken on the part of the Smithsonian Insti- 
tation to insure a proper standard of excellence in its publications, 
it will be readily understood that it cannot hold itself responsible 
for the facts and conclusions of the authors, as it is impossible in 
most cases to verify their statements.

Thb opportunity afforded by Mr. Carpenter's visit in 1859-60 
to the United States, was embraced to secure his services in 
naming and arranging the shells collected by the United States 
Exploring Expedition and other parties on the Pacific Coast of 
North America. Mr. Carpenter, having previously presented to 
the British Association a report on the state of knowledge in 
regard to the mollusks of the west coast of North America, 
embodied the additional information which he obtained, chiefly 
through the Smithsonian Institution, in a second report to the 
same Association ; and now, in order to facilitate the study of 
this class of animals by the American student) this work is r^ 
published with supplementary papers, from stereotype copies of 
the original pages.

After the publication of my first "Report on the present state 
of onr knowledge with regard to the Mollusca of the West Coast 
of North America,'' undertaken at the request of the British 
Association for the Advancement of Science, and printed in their 
Report for 1856, I visited America in order to arrange the first 
duplicate series of the great Reigen Collection of Mazatlan Shells 
which I had presented to the New York State Museum at 
Albany. It was one of the special objects of my visit to ex- 
amine the types of previously described species in the United 
States, that I might compare them with those known in England. 
Having visited Washington to examine the types of the United 
States Exploring Expedition (Wilkes'), I was requested to spend 
the winter of 1859-60 in unpacking and arranging the shells 
belonging to the National Museum under its charge ; and after 
my return to England I received from time to time the various 
collections sent to the Institution from the West Coast as they 
arrived ; all of these were duly compared with the types in the 
Cumingian and other British collections. 

Being thus in a position to correct a large number of unavoid- 
able errors in my first Report, and to add a great deal of fresh 
information from American sources (chiefly pbtained through the 
Smithsonian Institution), I was requested by the British Asso- 
ciation to embody the material in a " Supplementary Report" on 
the same subject as the first. Knowing how difficult it is for 
American students to obtain access to serial publications, I ob- 
tained permission, in behalf of the Institution, to stereotype this 
second report, and the papers connected with it, which appeared 
in the " Proceedings of the Zoological Society," the " Annals and 
Magazine of Natural History," and the "Journal de Conchy- 


Digitized by VjOOQ IC 


The present volume consists, therefore, of a reprint from these 
stereotype plates, with the original paging at the top, and the 
Smithsonian paging at the bottom ; and of a general index of 

The index was prepared (at the expense of the Smithsonian 
Institution) by Mr. E. Taylor, Student at McGill College. It 
includes not only the present volume but all my previous English 
publications on the subject, of which the principal are the First 
British Association Report and the British Museum Mazatlan 
Catalogue. All references to these works not reprinted have 
the page-number prefixed by a Roman Capital (0 to X), by 
which they can be at once distinguished from the simple num- 
bers which refer to the foot-page in this volume. Students who 
want an index to the First Report will fix the eye on the initial 
O ; to the Mazatlan Catalogue on P. 

In an accompanying list will be found an enumeration of all 
my papers published in European journals relative to American 
conchology, and for the most part reprinted in the present col- 
lection. In this, however, is not included any of the contribu- 
tions to American serials, as the Journal of the Academy of 
Natural Sciences of Philadelphia, the Proceedings of the Cali- 
fornia Academy, or the American Journal of Conchology. 

My principal object in the preparation of these works has been 
to make out and compare the writings of previous naturalists, so 
that it might be possible for succeeding students to begin where 
I left off, without being obliged to waste so large an amount of 
time as I have been compelled to do in analyzing the (often inac- 
curate) work of their predecessors. 

As the work of previous writers, whether satisfactory or other- 
wise, is duly tabulated in my Reports, so that others may judge 
of its value as well as I, it is not fair (as is often done) to quote 
from these Reports as on my authority. I was simply the his- 
torian, not the original writer. In the First Report I was a 
novice in the scientific world, and rarely ventured on criticisms ; 
in the second, I allowed myself with more confidence to state 
my own conclusions, because I found that others had not enjoyed 
the remarkable facilities of comparing types which fell to my lot, 
and which (in many instances) cannot be renewed. Since that 
time, Nuttall, Gould, Rich, Judge Cooper, and especially Hugh 
Cuming, have been called to another world ; their collections 

Digitized by VjOOQ IC 


have changed hands, and fresh causes of error have crept in. The 
present condition of the Oumingian Collection has been faithfully 
described by Dr. Gray in the Proceedings of the Zoological So- 
ciety ; and those who will take the trouble to compare his review 
of the Calyptrseidm, after the destruction of original labels conse- 
quent on Reeve's Monograph, with that which I gave in the 
Mazatlan Catalogue, while these labels were still fixed to the 
shells, will appreciate the advantages which I formerly enjoyed. 

Headers who may discover any uncorrected errors in this 
volume, or in any of my other works, are urgently requested 
to apprise me of them (Box 193^ P. 0., Montreal, C. E.), in 
order that they may be corrected in the Report of the Mollusca 
which Prof. Whitney has requested me to prepare for the Cali- 
fornia Geological Survey.

Supplementary Report on the Present State of our Knowledge with 
regard to the Mollusoa of the West CkKui of North America. By 
Phiup p. Carpenteh, B.A., PA.Z).* 

The object of the present Report is (1) to correct the errors which have been 
observed in the first Report (" Report &c." 1856, pp. 159-368) ; and (2) to 
point out the fresh sources of information which have been rendered avail- 
able since that period. For convenience of comparison, the paragraph num- 
bers refer to those of the first Report in the corrections, and are continued 
from them in the addenda. In the bibliographical portion, the criticisms by 
the writer of this Report are inserted in [ ] ; a distinction not always attended 
to in the former volume, in consequence of which erroneous names and local- 
ities have been attributed to the reviewer, instead of to the authors quoted. 

22. Introduction. — (Line 4 from bottom.) The river Willamette flows 
northwards (Gld.). 

23. Early Writers, — ^The only Califomian shell described by Linnseus is 
Twrbo sanguinem,= T. coccineus, Desh. ; v. Hani. Ips. Linn. Conch, p. 334. 
The types are too much worn to decide whether they came from the North 
Pacific or (as is more probable) from the Mediterranean. In Gmelin's edition 
of LinnsBus, L^sise, 1788-1790, — ^which is, in great measure, a translation 
from a Grerman work published a few years in advance [teste Hanley], — the 
following species are assigned to the " West Coast of America,'' probably on 
the authority of Martyn : — page 3529, Murex foliatus : 3702, PateUa pecten : 
3712, PateUa calyptra. The last two seem exotic. 

Many West-coast species had found their way into English collections 
during the last century, at a much earlier date than was expected at the time 
of the first Report. They were mainly derived from the voyages of Capt. 
Cook and other circumnavigators. Capt. Cook was accompanied by Solander, 
as naturalist, at the instance of Sir Joseph Banks. His shells passed into 
the hands of Mr. Humphrey, the dealer, at whose death the remainder, a 
thousand boxes, became the property of the elder Sowerby, and (in part) of 
Mawe [teste Hanley]. They took their chance of being figured or described 
by the early conchologists. The localities are (as might be expected) often 
interchanged, but have been quoted by later authors, who have not thought 
fit to avau themselves of more correct sources of information. 

The first accurate delineations are by Thomas Martyn, in his ' Universal 
Conchologist,' London, 1784. Those who only know this book from Chenu's 
reprint, Paris, 1845, cdn form but a poor idea of the exquisite beauty of the 
original work. Of this, very few copies are accessible ; but it may be consulted 
at the British Museum, the Royal Society, and the Royal College of Surgeons.

Many of the figures of Martyn were reproduced by Chemnits, in his eom- 
prehensive continuation of Martini's * Conohylien Cabinet,' 1780-1795. Un- 
happily, though often quoted for generic and specific names, he did not adopt 
the binonual nomenclature (except in rol. zi.), but described each shell in 
two or more words, at it happened. For this reason he appears to have had 
no scruple in altering previous designations, as follows : —

But the first authentic information on the molluscs of the North-western 
coast is given in the * Voyage Bound the World, but more particularly to the 
K.W. Coast of America,' by Capt. George Dixon, London, 1789: to which is 
added a Natural History Appendix. 
Page 355, fig. 3. Soten paUdus^. Cook's Ittiver. [=iMach(era NuUaUiy Conr.] 

In the * Conchology, or Natural History of Shells,' by George Perry, Lon- 
don, 1811, a work of no little pretension, yet singularly inaccurate, are figured 
the following species, but witiiout authorities for the assigned loc^ties : — 

* As this extarmot ii probably the first description on record of moUasos from the Pacific 
shores of X. America, by the origmal collector, and as the book is rarely to be met with, 
it may be interesting to quote the passage : — 

"At the mouth of Cook's River [bt. 59^-61°] are many species of shell-flsh, most of 
them, I presume, nondescript ; and of all which T should have endeavoured to have got 
speciinens, had business permitted. Among the biralres we noticed some of a large spe- 
ctes, of the Cardium or cockle-genus ICardium corbUy Mart.], half-a-dozen of which would 
hare afforded a good supper for one person $ but, for a repast of that kind, our men pre- 
ferred a Urge species of the Solen genus, which they got in quantity, and were easily dis- 
oorered by their spouting up the water as the men wnlked over the sands where they in- 
habited : as 1 suppose it to be a new kind, I hare giren a figure of it in the annexed plate 
[Sole* palulut ; accurate external and internal views, size of life]. 'Tis a thin brittle shell, 
smooth within and without : one valre is furnished with two front and two lateral teeth 
[the ^laterals' are the nymphs for the ligament] ; the other has one fiH>nt and one side 
tooth, which slip in between the others in the opposite valve : from the teeth, in each valve, 
proceeds a strong rib, idiich extends to above halfway across the shell, and gradually loses 
Itself towards the edge, which is smooth and sharp. The colour of the outside is whitCj^ 
circularly, bat faintlj, zoned with violet, and is covered with a smooth yellowish-brown 
epidermis, idudi ^pears darkest where the zones are : the inside is white, slightly zoned, 
and tinted with violet and pink. The animal, as in all species of this genus, protrudes 
bejond the ends of the sheU very much, and is exoeedinff good food. — A fine specimen of 
this kind is in the Collection of tfohn Swainson, Esq., of the Custom House, London. — We 
saw also, on this coast, a kind of muscle, in colour and shape much like the common eat^ 
able muscle of Europe, but di^ered in being circularly wrinkled, and a great deal larger 
[HytUus CaUformanmty Conr.]. One valve I saw at Queen Charlotte's Islands measu^ 
above nine inches and a half in length. — With pieces of these muscles, sharpened to an ez- 
euisite edge and point, the Indians head their harpoons and other instruments for fislnng 
Xhey &sten them on with a kind of resinous substance." — DUom't * Voyage*

The common Califomian Halioiis was, it seems, first described in the 
•Zoological Miscellany/ by Dr. W. E. Leach, vol. i. 1814*. 
Page 181; pL 58. HaUotis Cracherodii, Leach. California. 

Sdander made use of the materials he had collected in Cook's Voyage, in 
compiling a work on Conchology of considerable merit. DiUwyn made a copy 
/)f it, and nsed it in preparing his own, allowing priority to its specific names ; 
but it was never published. The types were lately parted- with by the Lin- 
nean Society, who had determined not to keep any collections except those of 
Linnaeus. The * Descriptive Catalogue of Becent SheUs,' &c., by L. W. DiU- 
wyn : London, 1817, is considered by Dr. Gray to be the best conchological 
fwork arranged according to the old system. The following are quoted from 
the West Coast:—

iL ^17 , Btuxinum ptumheum, Ghemxi, California. [JIfonocero*, PS. America.] 

Following DiUwyn, and nearly eclipsing his fame through the originality 
and exceUence of his classification, appeared Lamarck's * Animaux sans Ver- 
tebres,' 1818-1822. Coordinate with or preceding this work are his Articles 
in the * Annales du Mus^am ' and the * Encyclopedic.' The fresh sources of 
his information are quoted in the first Report, p. 169.

In Deshayes' invaluable edition of the *An. s. Vert.,' Paris, 1835-45, are 
quoted a variety of West Coast species which have already appeared under 
their original authorities. The foUowing may be added : —

The last of the early writers whose works should here be quoted, and whoso 
ideas on the relations of genera were considerably in advance of the age, though 
itomewhat fanciM, is Swainson, in his * Zoological lUustrations,' 1820-1883 ; 
* Appendix to the Sale Catalogue of Mrs. BUgh's SheUs,' 1822 ; and < Exotic 
Conchology,* 1§21-1836, reissued by Hanley, 1841. These works contain 
the foUowing West Coast species : —

species have since been detected in the Brit. Mus., from the late Lady 
Wigram's valuable donations, including Afacoma inquinata, Desh., described 
from her specimens ; but, as they are evidently from mixed localities, it has 
not been thought necessary to catalogue them.] 

*^. NuUdll. — ^The verification of Conrad's species being of considerable 
importance, I made diligent search for the original types during a recent 
tour in the United States. The supposed collection at Harvard University, 
Cambridge, Mass., has not been discovered by Professor Agassiz. Th« 
ioqdries which Professor Longfellow kindly made at my request residted in 
information that it was ** in Dr. Wyman's Mus. Nat. Hist., in the granite 
building on Howard Street ; " but no opportunity has been afforded of col- 
iadng it, or even of verifying its existence. Dr. Jay rendered me every 
assistance in studying the types which he has catalogued in his collection, 
now rearranging in his residence at Memironeck, near New York, and gave 
such duplicates as could be spared for the Smithsonian Museum. Several 
species, however, were not to be found, ani some were clearly erroneous, as 
e. g. Chama " exogyra, Conr.," which proved to be C lobata, Brod. ; W. I., 
teste Cuming; China, Brit. Mus. The most satisfactory information was 
derived from an interview with Mr. Conrad himself at the Acad. Nat. Sci., 
Philadelphia, where the honorary curator, Mr. W. G. Binney, afforde^l us 
all possible aid in eliminating types from the collections of the Academy and 
of private conchologists in the city. Mr. Nuttall's death (the news of which 
was received soon after) prevented his revising the corrections thus obtained. 
As he had previously presented a duplicate series of his shells to the Brit, 
Mus., which had been incorporated with the general collection, and had sig- 
nified to me his intention to leave the unique specimens to the nation, I at 
once communicated with the survivors and with Dr. Gray, who was fortunate 
enough to stop the intended sale, and to secure the shells, which were kindlv 
presented by the executors. They are now mounted, and kept in drawei-s 
adjoining the Reigen collection, the Vancouver collection, and the Stimp' 
fionian typical collection of East Coast N. American shells. The following

The identification of these species is attended with great uncertainty, as

destitute both of names and of locality-marks.

" Margindlay n. sp., Panama,*' — " San Domingo " having been crossed out. 
The small West Indian form, analogous to the typical sapotilla, is given as 
**glansy Mke." The large West Indian shells, with violet tinge behind the 
labmm, are " ccerulescens^ Lam., Panama," without authority. Another series 
of the W. Indian type is given as " cceruUscens, var.. Lam., 10 fms., sandy 
mod, Panama," without authority. Either habitat-errors have crept into the 
Cumingian labels, or else Mr. Eedpath's observation will not hold, viz. that 
the Atlantic shells have a posteri< r pinch on the labrum, which is not seen 
in the Pacific. All the authentic series examined from the two coasts bear 
out his view. There will be two opinions as to whether this be more than 
a mere local distinction.] 

Solarium quadrkeps, [On comparing suites of S, granulomm from the 
Texan coast with series from the Gulf of Califomia, it appeared that on each 
side of the Peninsula the sheUs went through similar changes in strength of

clue be obtained by which the coasts could be separated in a mixed collection. 
Hinds's shell stands at the furthest extreme of removal from S. granvHatumJ] 

43. U. S, Exploring Expedition. — ^The shells of this collection were depo- 
nted in the Patent Office in Washington, D.C., where, notwithstanding the 
great care of Mr. Varden, the curator, they were not a littie tampered-with. 
Dr. Gould laboured under great difficulties in his work of description ; he 
had access only to that part of the collection which happened to be unpacked 
and exposed to view during the brief period that his professional engagements 
allowed of his visiting the capital ; and his request to be allowed to take 
doubtful sheUs to Europe for identification was refused. The materials also 
were of an unsatisfactory kind, a large proportion of the specimens being 
much weathered, and many of the locality-marks being manifestly erroneous. 
If occanonal errors have been detected in his great work, they may fairly be 
set down to causes over which the author had no control. Many of these

have been corrected by Dr. Qovld himself, in his 'Otia Conchologica,* 
Boston, 1862, which contains the yarions papers in the 'Proceedings of the 
Boston Soc. of Nat. Hist.,' with an appendix. After the organization of the 
Smithsonian Institution, all the natural-history collections belonging to the 
Federal GoTomment were transferred to its keeping, with liberty to exchange 
duplicates. The shells remained unopened, and the types not accessible, till, 
at the request of Professor Henry, I undertook the arrangement of the col- 
lections. Fortunatdy, a considerable part of the shells professing to be 
the figured types of the new species were found together, with the artisfa 
marks corresponding with the plates and figures. The result of the exami- 
nation, so far as the general coUection is concerned, wiU shortly be prepared 
for the press ; it is sufficient here to tabulate the obsarrations on the N.W.

the author, not of the writer of the Report, who is by no means prepared to 
accept the learned doctor's identification of species. The three Chitons quoted 
with doubt from Tilesius have not been confirmed, as from Kamtschatka, by 
any other writer. The Ch. giganteus has the aspect of the large Ischnochitati 
Magdalensis ; the Ch, muricatus belongs to the Lophyrus group, which is not 
known so far north ; and the Ch. setosus has also a S. American aspect. The 
treatise *' De Chitone Giganteo Camtschatico addrtamentum ad Zoographiam 
Rosso- Asia ticum, auctore Tilesio," was read March 19, 1823, and published 
in 1824. It contains a very valuable and (for that period) remarkable account 
of the anatomy of Chitons, but it does not profess to name and describe species 
in the modern sense. The names, therefore, had better be dropped. Midden- 
dorflTs new species were first described in the * Bulletin de la Classe Physico- 
Mathematique de TAcademie Imperiale des Sciences de St. Petersbourg,' a 
work of which few complete copies are known in England, under the folio w«

Col. Jewett went to Panama, as a private collector, in January 1849, 
spending ten weeks in that region, including Taboga. This was two years 
before Prof. Adams's explorations. Thence he sailed to San Francisco, 
where he spent four months in exploring the shore for about 50 miles 
from the head of the bay. After labouring for a week at Monterey, he 
spent ten weeks at Sta. Barbara and the neighbourhood, thoroughly exploring 
the coast for fifteen miles as far as Sta. Bonadventura. It was here, at the 
** Eincon," after a violent southern storm, that he obtained the specimens of 
lAwma pieoides, aa well as many other rare species that have not been obtained 
by any other explorer. " The storm tore up the kelp to such a degree that 
it formed a bank for many miles on the beach, from 10 to 20 feet broad, and 
at least 4 feet deep. Many of the plants were more than 60 feet long and 5 
inches in diameter, having the appearance of vast cables." Before his return 
to the east, he also collected at Mazatlan (where he obtained some species 
not included in the B. M. Catalogue) and at Acapuico. There can be no 
doubt of the accuracy of the Colonel's observa^ons at the time they were 
made. UusuiT^assed in America as a field-paltcoatolo^t, possessed of accurate

discrimination, abundant carefulness, and unwearied diligence and patience, 
no one was better fitted to collect materials for a scientific survey of the coast. 
But, unfortunately for his (as for the NuttalHan) shells, he did not describe them 
at the time himself. They were subjected to all the derangements caused by 
fi'equent changes of residence, and transmission to various naturalists for 
identification. As we know what errors creep into the collections of the 
most learned under such circumstances, it is not surprising that they should 
now have lost much of their geographical value. After several days spent 
in a very, searching elimination of the west-coast shells from his general col- 
lection, I was driven to the conclusion that several labels had become mis- 
placed. This was so clearly the case as to certain N. England and W. Indian 
species interchanged with Pacific specimens, that it might also affect (e. g.) 
8ta. Baiiiata and Panama specimens as compared with each other. The kelp 
driven up by the great storm may have travelled from remote localities ; which 
will account for tropical shells having been found at Sta. Barbara, as W. 
Indians occasionally are even on our own shores. It is possible also, as the 
Califpmian seas have as yet been but little dredged, that deep-water species 
live there which as yet are known only in the tropical province. Already 
some Gulf species have been thus obtained at San Diego and Catalina Island 
by Dr. Cooper, just us Mr. M*Andrew dredged Mediterranean species on the 
coast of Norway. But fects of such importance should rest on better evidence 
than chance shells picked on a beach, and subjected to dangers of altered 
labels afterwards. What was regarded by Dr. Gould as of authority is cata- 
logued, according to his determinations of species, on pp. 226-231 of the first 
Report. The following is a list of the species which I found in the collection*, 
divided simply into the temperate and the tropical faunas.

• This collection belongs to his daughter, Mrs. Boyce, of Utica, N.Y. The- Colonprs 
invaluable collection of U. S. Palieozoic fossils (probably the largest made by any indiTi- 
dual's own hand) may be consulted at the State Museum in Albany, and will probably 
find its ultimate destination at one of the principal colleges. A large number of the 
fossils described by Prof. Hall wei^ from this collection, though often without acknow- 
ledgment. Only a small proportion of the types of the celebrated * Paleeontology ' are 
to be found in the State Collection, which was subjected to disastrous and very extensiye 
curtailment before Col. J. entered on his present duties as curator. 

* These species and marked yarieties were first found by Col. J. 

t Of these. forms, either not seen or not distmguished by Dr. Gould, the diagnoses are 
written, and will probably be found in one of the scientific periodicals for 1864. 

X Unless otherwise stated in the Hat, Report, pp. 228-231, it may be presumed that 
these species were from the neighbourhood ot Sta. i^arbara.

This list, ol about 133 species from the northern and 328 from the 
southern fauna (nearly twice as largo as that sent by Dr. Gould and printed 
in the first Keport, and yet not containing several species there quoted), is an 
instnictive instance of what may be accomplished in about three-quarters of 
a jear, simply by picking up shore-shells. It contains about 48 species in 
the northern and 22 in the southern faunas not previously described. 

Besides the recent shells, Col. Jewett brought home a very interesting 
series of Pliocene fossils from the neighbourhood of Sta. Barbara. Almost aU 
of them are species known to inhabit neighbouring seas, and are chiefly 
nor^em forms. Of some no recent specimens have yet been found in such 
perfect condition. The following is a list of the species, which is of the more 
value as they have not been intermixed with those of any other locality, and 
the spot does not seem to have been discovered by any succeeding geological 
explorer. It was two miles from the coast, and 150 feet high.

The collections of Major Eich, having been tabulated by Dr. Gould simply 
AS from Upper or Lower California, I had expected to find of but little geo- 
graphical value. They proved, however, to be of peculiar interest. Major 
Hich had been one of the naturalists in the U. S. Expl. Exp., and his warlika 
occupations did not prevent his remaining long enough at particular stations 
to pay close attention to the Molluscs. His forte lay in procuring shells in 
the best possible condition ; and a study of them was very serviceable in. 
explaining the dead shore-sheUs usually obtained from other sources. For- 
tunately, he was quite aware of the importance of geographical accuracy, and 
arranged those obtained at different places in separate drawers. The " Upper 
Califomian " collections were made at Monterey, San Francisco, San Diego, 
and San Pedro ; the '< Lower Califomian," in the Gulf, principally at La 
Paz, partly at San Jose and Mazatlan. At the latter place he met M. 
Beigen, who had filled his house with decomposing molluscs to such an ex- 
tent as to induce the neighbours to have recourse to the police. From him he 
obtained many species not in the Brit. Mus. Cat., and probably sent to Europe 
in the Havre collection. Major Rich's beautiful series may be consulted at 
his residence, opposite the British Legation, Washington, D. C. ; and are 
designed ultimately for one of the public museums in the neighbourhood.

professional residence in the Sandwich Islands), and is arranged in the Albany

goremments. They have since been offered to the Museums of Harvard 
University, Cambridge, Mass. ; M'Gill University, Montreal, C. E. ; and the 
Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D. C. ; and accepted on the same con- 
didoDs *. The writer of the Brit. Mus. Catalogue spared no pains in his 
endeavours to verify the previously described species of Prof. C. B. Adams ; 
yet a subsequent comparison of types has developed very unexpected coinci- 
dences. Those who will take the trouble to compare the two diagnoses in the 
synonyms now given will add one to the many prooft of the uncertainty of 
the senses in observation, and the inaccuracy of language in description. The 
following corrections and additions should be made to the list in the Britibh 
Association Report, pp. 243-264. 

18. Parapholtu acuminata is imited to P. ealva by Tryon, Mon. Phol. 

23. The specimens obta'ned from Madflgascar by Sir E. Belcher in the Voy. Sa- 

marong appear ab^olutelv identical.

belonging to KeuiadcB, viz. CycladeUa papyracea, A peiiect specimen, since

65. TdUdora Burnett is not Z. eristata : r. anteh, p. 528.

71 and 72. The names of thQ^e shells have been altered and re-altered in Mus.

08. CdUUta aUemata Las a very different aspect from the ordi9aiT C. drcinata ; but 
several of the Pacific shells affiliate more naturally to the West Indian fonii. 
99. C. aMms, C, tortuosa, and C. concinna appear to be one species. 

100. Sir E. Belcher is confident that he dredged C. petechiaUs, in deep water, off S. 
Bias. He has the same confidence m regard to some of the East Indian 
Circes. At this distance of time, a written locality-ticket would have had 
more authority. 

105. The hinge proves that this sjjecies is distinct from the true V. cremfera, Sby. 
It has been named V. maiUata by Rve., Conch. Ic. sp. 43. It was also 
brought bv Kellett and Wood, and is allied to V, puUcaria, 

110. Among the Panama varieties of this very variable species is Venus fitacolmeata, 
T, grata takes the place of the Califomian T, staminea, which is sometimea 
erroneously given as a svnonym, and is not draminea, as often quoted. 

116. It appears that Gouldia (Hetia, C. B. Ad., olim, non Sby. nee H. & A Ad.) is 

congeneric with " Circe" minima, not with the Astartids. Prof. Adams's 
fresh specimens of his O, Pacifica prove to have the Crassatelloid internal 
ligament, and represent one of the many remarkable forms of that' group. 

117. Fresh specimens of G. varians, horn. Cape St. Lucas, have also the internal 

ligament, and must rank under CrassateUa until that genus has been naturally 

118. Lasaria Calif omica, A well-marked group of species from the West Coast. 
121. The purple and orange specimens, here treated as the adolescent state of Chama 

Mexican€h are certainly the C^, echinata of collections, and may possibly 
prove a distinct species. A large series sent from Socoro Is. bv Mr. Xantus 
confirms this view ; but all the specimens seen are decorticatea or incrusted* 
1216. This is the Chama BudcUana of Cf. B. Ad., and probably distinct 
L34. The specimens of Cardium graniferum in Mus. Cum., from St Thomas, W. I., 
appear exactly identical. 

136. The specimens from the Pacific const, some of which are of very lar^e size, 

have generally a red tinge round the inner margin ; as have also the Fiji 
specimens brought by the U. S. Expl. Exp. In other respects they exactfy 
accord with the W. Indian. The Pacific shells are generally called v. 
exasperata, Rve., a name first given to the rough Caribbean variety from 
Honduras, &c 

137. Codakia punctata. This shell also, brought by the U. S. Expl. Exp. from the 

Fiii Is., is found sparingly along the American shores, and has the same 
coloured margin. 

142. May possibly prove identical with L, heUa, Conr., S. Dieffo. 

150. The iMcina orbeUa of Qo\Adi,:=Sph<BreUa tumida, Conr., MS., is the northern 
form; uniformly larger and smoother than Diplodmvta semiaspera. This 
last is fully conhrmed from both oceans. 

152. " Felania " serricata appears congeneric with MUtha, H. & A. Ad., ssMittreaf 
Gray, the type of which* (3f. Childreni) is a Gulf species. 

164. Lasea rubra, Mr. J. G. Jeffi-eys does not consider tne Brit Mus. specimen 
identical with the British. The Mediterranean specimens are much more 
unlike. A colony of fresh shells from a burrow at Cape St Lucas, when 
examined, under the microscope, side by side with Ilfracombe specimens, did 
not present even varietal differences. The species also appears on the Cali- 
fomian and Japan coasts. Similar and perhaps conspecitic forms are 
found on most coasts : among them is Porania Petitiana, Chen. Conch. IlL 
p. 2, pi. 1. f. 2 ; Callao, not rare, Petit. 

156. For this species, corbuhides, and other angular forms, the name Bomia may 
be revived in a restricted sense. (A. Ad.) 

157, 158. Mr. A. Adams, who is about to make the Eelliads a special studv, thinks 
that these intermediate forms would rank better with Montacuta or Tellimya 

166. This is almost certainly =^o(fonte glauca, Val. 

168. Dr. Dunker renamed this shell M. Adamnanm, P. Z. S. Nov. 1856. 

177. The subgenus Adula may be enlarged to include this and other nestling 

?LUhophagi, which often adhere by ovssus, like Modiola. 

178. Liosolenm is quite distinct ft^m Mytilimeria, which appears simply an aber- 

rant form otLgontia, Other " Ltthopkagi" probably rank with it

265. The " large flat shell " referred-to is TectureUa grandis, Grav, Brit. Assoc Rep. 
1861, p. 137. TectureUa is preoccupied by Stimps. Gr. Manan Invert. It 
being needful to divide the old genus Acm€Ba, IjoUia may be used for this 
section. By reviving synonyms as sectional names, when a genus is divided, 
gpod names may be retained in a restricted sense, and the burden of a spu- 
rious nomenclature lessened. The species is Lottia gigantea (Sby. Gen.).

for the NUoticm group, which contains the largest forms, it is best to revive 
Swainson's excellent name CaUiostoma for the " Ziziphinua "group. A specific

670l Dr. Gould dissents from the affiliation of this shell to the West African species 
on the ground that ''he can separate the African from the Pacific shells as fast 
as we can hand them to him. So easily can any ordinary naturalist separate 
conspecific British and Mediterranean specimens, or Mazatlan and Panama 
specimens. It is not found in the West Temperate fauna ; the '* var. Ca<Y- 
fomiea *' being the ordinary type from the Pacific Islands, which is much 
more entitled to be regarded as distinct than are the West American forms. 

672. Is shown by perfect Cape St Lucas specimens to belong to a natural f|roup 
of species, resembling flattened, penorated PhasianelltBy to which the name 
Bucosmia may be given.

• The names of Klein in his *Tentamen* and * Lucubratiunculs,' 1773, are not entitled 
to precedence (according to the Brit. Assoc, rules), because he evidently did not adopt the 
Linnean mode of binomial nomenclature. What he calls a '* genus " answers more to the 
modem idea of copter or section. By chance, some of his names are allovrable ; but, if 
tued, the genus must be regarded as that of Adams, C^rav, Mdrch, or other writer who 
defines it. The following wUl serve as illustrations of Klein's ** genera " — " Sol, Luna,

54. C. B. Adams, — ^After arranging the duplicate Reigen Collection in the 
Etate Museum at Albany, New York, I proceeded to Amherst, Mass., to 
btudy the type-collection from which Prof. Adams's book was written. The 
result is embodied in a '' Review of Prof. C. B. Adams's ' Catalogue of the 
Shells of Panama,' from the Type Specimens," written for the Zool. Soe. in 
Jan., and published in the Proceedings for July 1863, pp. 339-369. In this 
paper the synonymy between the Mazatlan and Panama Catalogues is pointed 
out, and the species assigned to the modem genera. The following are the 
principal corrections needed in the list. Rep. pp. 267-280. The results in 
the succeeding paragraphs, pp. 280, 281, should be altered accordingly,

Spiroglyphus. PetaheonchuSy Aletes, and part of Bivonia are united to Fe-r- 
metusj Morch (non auct.). The name Aletes appears to be used in a varietal 
sense, in no respect according with the subgenus as described by the author. 

* I was perhaps wrong iu referring the Mazatlan sheUs to Yal.*8 species ; bat if 'Sir, 
Mdrch is right in his own determination, the Mazatlan synonjroy and locality must be 
expunged. There was no evidence of a typical Siphonium when the Reigen Catalogue was 
published, nor have I seen such from the whole coast, unless ih^ minute operculum A, 
Brit. Mus. Col., tablet 2537, be supposed the young. MOrch says, ** the lid is unknown."

lar removed as anv ordinary Yemietids can be from each other. 

t The writer doubts respecting this species, and thinks the shell on which it is para-

Several West Coast species were named and figured in the elder Sowerby's 
'Genera of Recent and Fossil Shells,' London, 1820-1824 ; a work of singular 
merit for its time, but left unfinisheid*. The stock was purchased by a dealer, 
with a view to completion ; but newer works have occupied its place, and 
the valuable plates and text remain useless in his hands. As no dates appear 
io the bound copy of the work, it cannot be stated whether the species here 
named by Mr. Sowerby had been before published. The loss of the original 
work has been in some respects supplied by the completion of the extremely, 
similar * Conchologia Systematica,' by L. Reeve, vol. L 1841, vol, ii. 1S42. 
It might almost be considered a second edition of the * Genera,' of which 
some of the plates occur in the quarto form. References are here given to 
the species reproduced firom Sowerby 's unfinished work, which is often quctcd 
by Mr. Reeve according to the " Numbers " in which it appeared :—

93. Smithsonian Institution. — At the time of the first Report, the tempe- 
rate fauna of the West Coast was only known through sources liable to error, 
the collectors having visited other regions besides Oregon and California, and 
the species described by American authors being but imperfectly understood 
in this country. The large accession to the number of authentic species, the 
important elimination of synonyms, and the assignment of ascertained loca-

litiesy wbicli are placed. on record in ibis Keport, are due almost entirely to 
the stimulus afforded to science in general, and to this branch especially, by 
the Smithsonian Institution at Washington, D. C. The fund bequeathed by 
Hr. Smithson, '' for the increase and diffusion of knowledge among men,' 
having been declined by the Universities to which it was offered in the Old 
World, is held (in trust only) by the U. S. Government *. It is administered 
by a permanent body of Regents, according to a constitution drawn-out at 
their instance by the Secretary, Prof. J. Henry, LL.D. It may be safely 
stated that to his unswerving consistency, cautious judgment, and catholic 
impartiality it is mainly owing that, during various political and social 
changes, the Institution 'has not only steered dear of aU party bias in the 
United States, but has distributed its advantages with equal hand on both 
sides of the Atlantic. The Natural History department is under the special 
superintendence of the Assistant-Secretary, Prof. Spencer Baird, M.D., whose 
indefatigable zeal, fertility of resource, and thorough knowledge of the re- 
quirements of the science have enabled the Institution, by a comparatively 
small outlay, not only to amass in a few years an enormous store of accurate 
materials, but also to eliminatefrom them a series of publications on various 
important branches of American zoology. The contributions of the Smith- 
sonian Institution to our knowle^ige of the West Coast fauna may be consi- 
dered under [A] its collections and [B] its publications. 

[A] Smithsonian Collections. — ^According to the present law, all collections 
made in expeditions fitted out by the Government become the property of the 
Smiths. Inst., with liberty to exchange duplicates. Its museum, therefore, 
is rich in types ; and its liberal policy allows of all duplicates being trans- 
mitted to public collections, to schools of science, or to individuals engaged 
in special departments of study. Not being forced into an unalterable plan 
of operations, like many leading museums of the Old World, permission was 
given to send nearly fiie whole of the molluscs to this country, that they 
might be compared with the Cumingian, the Brit. Mus., and other leading 
collections f. The importance of thus establishing a harmony of nomencla- 
ture for species on both sides of the Atlantic can scarcely be over-estimated. 
The previous want of it can be abundantly seen by comparing paragraphs 
39, 43, 64, &c., in the first and in this Keport. The West Coast collections 
belonging to the Smiths. Inst, are mainly from the following sources : 
a. The United States Exploring Expedition, under Capt. (afterwards Admiral) 

Wilkes, 1837-1840, v. par. 43. 
h. The Nortii Pacific Exploring Expedition, under Capt. Rogers, 1853-1855. 

Collector, Dr. Stimpson. 
ۥ The Pacific Railroad Expedition, 49th parallel, under Governor J. J. 

Stevens, 1853-54. Collections made in Puget Sound by Dr. Suckley, 

and at Columbia River by Dr. J. G. Cooper. Dr. Suckley also collected 

at Panama. 

* The war has but to a limited extent curtailed Uie funds and interfered with the 
operations of the Institution. 

t The Cunard Steamship Com]MmT have most liberally conveyed these stores across 
the Atlantic, free of cost. The British and American Governments have allowed special 
facilities for passing the Custom Houses without derangement Similar acts of liberality 
»nd courtesy are continually afforded to the Smiths. Inst — The materials for this Report 
have been placed unreservedly in the hands of the writer, although he went to Washing- 
ton as a complete stranger, and with no other introduction than his publislied writiiigiw

their accuracy may admit of doubt. The species received from the most im- 
portant of these sources will be enumerated in their order ; of the remainder, 
exact lists may be consulted by the student in the Smithsonian Catalogues, 
and the combined results will be found tabulated as * Pacific Bailroad Expe- 
ditions ' or * Smithsonian Collections.' 

[B] Smithsonian Publications. — These may be classed under three heads. 
(1.) Works published by the U. 8. Government, with more or less of assist- 
ance derived from and through the Smiths. Inst. (2.) The 'Smithsonian 
Contributions to Knowledge,' printed in 4to, and answering to the ' Trans-

actions* of English learned societies; and (3.) The 'Miscellaneons Colleo* 
lions/ in 8vo, answering to the * Proceedings ' of the societies : — 

(1.) The series of ten 4to Yolumes, called ' Pacific Railroad Reports,* con- 
tains a complete risumi of the natural history of the western slope of North 
America. The Recent and Tertiary Fossil Mollusca will be analyzed in the 
following pages. Accounts have aJso been published of the natural history 
of other expeditions. — The annual volumes of ' Reports of the Regents of the 
Smithsonian Institution/ published by the U. 8. Government, contain exact 
accounts of the assistance rendered to the expeditions by the Smiths. Inst., 
as well as lectures and articles on special subjects. In these will be found 
fuU particulars of the principles which regulate the natural-history workings 
of the Institution*. 

(2.) The only paper bearing on our present inquiry as yet published in 
the * Contributions ' is on the " Invertebrata of the Grand Manan," by Dr. W. 
Stimpson, which should be consulted by all who desire to institute a compa- 
rison between the sub-boreal faunas on the two sides of the Atlantic. 

(3.) The * Miscellaneous Collections ' are all stereotyped, and very freely 
circulated. Among them will be found " Directions " for collecting specimens 
of natural history, with special instructions concerning the desiderata on the 
Pacific coasts. These have been widely distributed among the various go- 
vernment officials, the employes of the U, 8. Coast Survey, and the variously 
ramified circulating media at the command of the Smiths. Inst. ; and have 
already borne a fair share of important results, although the war has 
greatly impeded the expected prosecution of natural -history labours. " Check 
Lists '* have been published " of the Shells of North America, by I. Lea, 
P. P. Carpenter, W. Stimpson, W. G. Bmney, and T. Prime,** June 1860. No. 
1 contains the Marine Shells of the << Oregonian and Califomian Province,** 
and No. 2 of the ** Mexican and Panamic Province." They are chiefly com- 
piled from the first British Association Report, with such elimination of sy- 
nonyms and doubtful species, and addition of fresh materials, as had become 
available up to the date of publication. They were not intended to be quoted 
as authorities ; and so rapid has been the accumulation of fresh information 
that no. 1 is already out of date. In the " Terrestrial Gasteropoda," by W. 
G. Binney, list no. 1 contains the '' species of the Pacific coast, from the ex- 
treme north to Mazatlan,'* to which many additions have since been made. 
In the list of " Fluviatile Gasteropoda,** also by W. G. Binney, " the letter W 
distinguishes those confined to tiie Pacific coast, WE is affixed to those 
found in both sections of the continent, and M designates the Mexican 
species. From the starting-point of this list considerable progress has 
already been made. In the brief list of " Cyclades, by Temple Prime,** the 
Mexican and Central American species are similarly designated; but the 
western species and those common to the Pacific and Atlantic United States 
are not distinguished. In the list of " Unionidae," by Dr. I. Lea, whose life- 
long devotion to the elucidation of that family is everywhere gratefully 
acknowledged, the Pacific species are designated by a P. The large series

courtesy of the Trustees of the British Museum ; but, unfortunately, the blocks vrere not 
to be found at the time. They will appear, howerer, in forthcoming Smithsonian publi- 
cations. The * Lecture on the Shells of the Gulf of California,' in the Yol. for 1859,

of specimens, representing varieties and ages, in Br. Lea's private collection 
are well deserving of close study. Their owner shares the liberality of Mr. 
Coming in making them available for all purposes of scientific inquiry. 

The Smiths. Inst, has just issued from the press the first part of the 
'Bibhography of North American Conchology, previous to the year I860,* by 
W. G. Binney, containing references to all printed information on North 
American sheUs by native writers. It is divided into " § A. American descrip- 
tions of North American molluscs; §B. American descriptions of foreign 
molluscs ; § C. Descriptions of foreign species by American authors in foreign 
works.^ The work is prepared with unusual care and completeness, and 
with the accurate, judgment which characterizes all Mr. Binney's writings. 
It contains, under every separate work or paper, '* a list of species therein 
deflcribed or in any importmt manner referred-to, together with their syno- 
nymy, locality, and the volume, page, plate, and figure relating to them." 
The second part, containing similar references to American species described 
by European writers, is now passing through the press. Mr. Binney has 
most kindly sent the proofs to the writer (as far as p. 287), which have been 
freely used in preparing this Beport, and have supplied various important 
Boorces of information. It undertakes to provide for the whole North American 
continent what has been here attempteid for the West Coast ; and in much 
greater detail, as not only the first description, but all subsequent quotations 
are duly catalogued. It may be regarded as a complpte index of references 
to all works on North American malacology. The student, in making use 
of it, will remember that it is only with the Pulmonates that Mr. Binney 
profbses an intimate acquaintance. For these the work may be regarded as 
complete. But, in other departments of the science, only those shells which 
are assigned by the authors to North America are quoted ; consequently a 
large numher of species are passed-over which are truly American, but are 
assigned to other places, or described without locality. Also, species really 
belonging to other faunas, but falsely attributed to North America, duly 
appear as though genuine ; and the additional localities frequently assigned 
by the authors (which are often the real habitats) are seldom quoted. More- 
over Uie citations stop at Mazatlan ; consequently, the tropical fauna of the 
West Coast is but imperfectly represented. Lastly, the authors are not pre- 
sented in chronological or indeed in any other ostensible order ; but it is pro- 
mised that the necessary information will be given in the index on the com- 
pletion of the work. The student will further bear in mind that for many 
reasons no second-hand reference can serve the same purpose as a consultation 
of the original book. With these cautions the work will be found invaluable 
by all who are engaged in working-out American species ; and great thanks 
are due to Mr. Binney for undertaking the extreme labour of its compilation, 
and to the Smiths. Inst, for suppl3ring the expense of its publication. Probably 
no such work has yet been printed on the malacology of any other country. 

Lastly, there is now in preparation a complete series of hand-books on 
North American malacology, copiously illustrated with wood engravings, and 
eontaining a digest of all that is known in each department The marine 
ihells of &e Atlantic are being described by Dr. Stimpson, who is now also 
engaged in the dissection of the Freshwater Rostrifers ; the marine shells of 
the Pacific are placed in the hands of the writer ; the Pulmonates will be 
thoroughly worked-out by Mr.* Binney, the MelaniadBe by Mr. Tryon, and

the Cycladidae by Mr. Prime. Thus it appears that the malacologists have 
been unusuallj zealous in advancing their before somewhat slumbering studj ; 
and that the Smiths. Inst, has displayed unexpected liberality in preparing 
and issuing from the press works of a comprehensive character^ for the ** in- 
crease and diffusion of what will hereafter be regarded as m important 
branch of ''knowledge among men.'^ 

94. North Pacific Exploring Expedition. — In the year 1853, Dr. W. 
Stimpson, well known in very early life for his dredging-researcbes and ob- 
servations on the marine animals of the Atlantic coaat, accompanied Captain 
Bingold as naturalist to the U. 8. " North Pacific Exploring Expedition." Ita 
principal object was to obtain more correct information with regard to the 
Japan seas and the extreme north of the Pacific, und it wa3 only incidentally 
that it visited the Califomian province. However, Dr. Stimpson*s extensive 
d]*edgings in the fiords of Japan developed the interesting fapt, that while tka 
southern shores presented a fanna essentially Indo-Paofic in its character, 
and abounding in the nsual Cones, Cowries, Olives, (fee., the northern slopes 
of the same i^ands presented an assemblage of forms far more analogous to 
the fanna of the 8i&a and Yanconver region, and containing many species 
common to the American coast. During the course of the voyage dredging- 
ooUections t were made by Dr. Stimpson at Madeira, Capeof Good Hope, Sydney 
Harbour, Coral Seas, Port Jackson, Hong Kong (also by Mr. Wri^t; New Ire- 
land, Lieut. YanWycke; Gasper Straits, Squires ; vicinity of Canton, presented 
by Mr. Bowring; interior of Hong Kong, Wri^t); Chana Sea; Whampoa ; 
Benin Island; Loo Choo Island; Ousima; Katonasima Straits; Kikaia; 
Kikaisima ; Kagosima [alas !] ; Hakodadi ; Taniogesima ^alao Wright, Kent, 
Kern, Boggs, Carter); Simoda; Niphon (also Brook); Arvatska Bay, Kamt- 
Bchatka; Amincheche Island, Avikamcheche Island, Behring Straits; Senia- 
vine Straits, Arctic Ocean (also Captain lU^rs) ; San Francisco; (Puget Sound 
and Shoalwater Bay, Dr. Cooper, Cat no. 1849-1856); Tahiti (also Captain 
Stephens, Kern), Hawaii (also Garrett ; Sea of Ochotsk, Captain Stevens). AU 
these were duly catalogued, with stations, depths, and other partaciQars^ and 
living animals preserved in spirits after being drawn. The expedition appears 
to have returned in 1856. Although Dr. Stimpson devoted hw chief attention 
to articulate animals, and molluscs occupied but a subordinate share of Iub 
attention, it is safe to say that in this short period he collected more trust- 
worthy species of shells, with localities, than were received at the Smiths, 
Inst, from the united labours of the naturalists of Captain Wilkes's celebrated 
expedition. Through some imaocountable cause, certain of the most valuable 
boxes were " lost " between New York and Washington ; the remainder were 
placed in the hands of Dr. Grould for description, with the MS. catalogue, a 
copy of which forms the " MoUusca, Yol. I.," nos. 1-2003, of the Smiths. 
Mus. Fortunately, Dr. Gh)nld embraced the opportunity to bring the un- 
certain shells to London, and compare them with the Cumingian Collection. 

t A fuller account of this expedition is here given thra it justified from its oontributions 
to the W. American fnuns, because no other information respecting it is as yet availably 
to the molacological student.

. thus a large body of Bpeciea, named from types, was prepared for the New 
Wodd ; but^ imfortimately, through imperfect packing and the practice of 
marking by numbers only, much of the value of this identification was lost, 
the new species were described by Dr. Gould in the ' Boston Proc. Soc. Nat. 
IGst/ 185&-1861; and on completion of the series, the author collected 
tbe papers embodying the new species of the two great scientific expeditions, 
as well as his other scattered publications, and issued them in a most valuable ' 
book, entitled ' Otia Conchologica: Descriptions of Shells and Molluscs, from 
18^-1862/ Boston, 1862 ; with ''Bectifications," embodying such changes of 
nomenclature and synonyms as he desired to represent his matured views. 
In quoting Dr. Gould's writings, therefore, this table should always be con* 
raited. A considerahle portion of the spedmens have been returned to the 
Smiths. Inst., of which the larger species are mounted in the collection, and 
die smaller ones have been sent to the writer to compare with those collected 
by Hr. A. Adams, which were unfortunately being described in the London 
journals almost simultaneously. The war has uiHiappily postponed the in** 
tention of publishing the complete lists of species collected and identified with 
10 much accurate care. The following, however, have already been deter- 
mined by Dr. Gould from the r^on in which American species occur. The 
list is given entire (so far as identified), because species as yet known only 
on one coast of the North Pacific may hereafter be found on the other. It 
contains (as in the comparison of the Caribbean and West Mexican fauna) 
(a) species certainly identical, (6) probably identical, (c) '* interesting ana- 
goes," and (d) representative forms.

1852-4, was not undertaken for scientific purposes ; and no special proyision 
was made either fi>r collecting or describing objects of natural history. A 
large number of shells, howeyer, were obtained, and identified by Dr. Jay of 
Kew York. In VoL II. of the 'Narratiye of the Expedition, <jkc.' (Washing- 
ton^ 1856, pp. 289-297) is giyen a Hat of Japanese shells, with descriptions and 
figures of ihe (supposed) new species. The following are related to the mol- 
luscs of the West Coast t. Specimetis of the most important may be seen

At the time that Dr. Gould was describing Dr. Stimpson's Japanese 
shells in the Boston Proc. Ac. N. S., Mr. A. Adams, R.N., one of the leained 
authors of the * Genera of Becent Mollusca/ was making extensive and accu- 
rate dredgings in the same seas. The new genera and species have been and 
are being published, in a series of papers, in the Ann. h Mag. Nat. Hist and 
in the Proc. ZooL Soc., preparatory to an intended complete work on the 
mollusc-fauna of the Eastern NortJi Padilc. The collections of Mr. Adams 
have already displayed the Japanese existence of several species, as Siphonalia 
KdUttii, Solen sicaritis, Homalopoma sangmneum, &c., before supposed to be 
petuliar to the West coast. Unfortunately for our present purpose, while 
the comparison of specimens was going on, Mr. Adams was unexpectedly 
called to service on board H.M.S. * Majestic,' and was obliged to pack up hia 
collections. Enough has been ascertained, however, to prove that it will be 
unsafe henceforth to describe species from either coast without companson 
with those of the opposite shores. 

97. Pacific Bailroad Reports. — As it is necessary, in studying any fauna, 
to make comparisons far round in space, so it is essential to travel far back 
in time. The fullest account of the fossils of the West Coast of America is 
to be found in the ' Explorations and Surveys for a Bailroad Boute from the 
Mississippi Biver to the Pacific Ocean,' which form ten thick quarto volumes, 
copiously illustrated with plates, and published by the U.S. Senate, Wash- 
ington, 1856 *. The natural-history department was conducted under the 
superintendence and with the aid of the Smithsonian Institution ; and science 
is under special obligations to Prof. Spencer 8. Baird, the Assistant Secre- 
tary, for his Beports on the Vertebrate Animals. It would hardly be ex- 
pected in Europe that the best resunU of the zoology, the botany, and the 
geology of the vast region between the Great American desert and the Pacific 
should be found in a railroad survey. Unfortunately, it has not been the 
custom to advertize and sell the valuable documents printed at the expense 
of the U. S. Government, in the ordinary channels of trade. They often become 
the perquisites of the members of Congress, and through them of the various 
employis, by whom they are transferred to the booksellers' shelves. The 
fifth volume of the series is devoted to the explorations of Lieut. Williamson ; 
the second Part contains the Beport by W. P. Blake, geologist and miuero- 
logist of the expedition. In the Appendix, Art. IL, are found ** Descrip- 
tions of the EossQ Shells," by T. A. Conrad. They were first published in the

* The existence of Eocene strata on the Pacific slope is ascertained by a single boulder 
ef very hard sandstone, which, though very small, nimished fifteen species. Of these, 
three correspond with forms from Claiborne, Alabama ; and the '* finger-post of the 
Eocene'* appears in its usual abundance. Mr. Conrad characterizes the specimens as 
" beautifully perfect ;'* which would not hare been supposed from hb descriptions and 
figures. They " seem to indicate a connexion of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans during 
yte Eocene period ;" and the autlior expects that " when the rock shall have been diftoo- 
Tered and mvestigated in Jtitu, tresh forms will be obtained, with which we are already 
^miliar in eastern localities."

Mr. Conrad, than whom there is no higher authority for American Tertiary 
fossils, considers the age of the Eocene boulder ascertained ; and that '^ the 
deposits of Santa Barbara and San Pedro represent a recent formation, in 
which (teste Blake) ihe remains of the Mammoth occur : and the shells indi- 
eate little, if any, change of temperature since their deposition." But he 
acknowledges that tiie intermediate beds are of uncertain age. Those on 
Carrizo Creek be refers to the Miocene, some characteristic species being 
either identical with the Eastern Miocene or of closely related forms. In 
ad^don to the species tabulated in this Report, he quotes, as haying been 
eoUected in California by 3>r. Heermann, " Mereenaria perlaminosa, Conr., 
scarcely difflering from M, DucaUUi, Conr. ; and a Cemoria^ Pandora, and 
Cardka €fi extinct species, dosely analogous to Miocene forms." The casts 
from Ocoya Creek w^re too fHable to be preserved, and are figured and de- 
Bcribed from Ifr. Blake'^ drawings ; these also are regarded 9s Hiocepoe. The 
San Di^an specimens are too imperfect for identification ; they ^e referred

The northern fossils are supposed by Mr. Conrad to be of the Miocene period, 
anH not to be referable to existing species. Those from Sta. Barbara, however, 
are clearly of a very recent age, and probably belong to the beds searched by 
Col. Jewett. But by fax the most interesting result of Dr. Newberry's ex- 
plorations was the discovery of the very typical Pacific shell, Malea ringens^ 
m the Tertiary strata on the Atlantic slope of the Isthmus of Daijlen, not 
many miles from the Caribbean Sea. The characters of this shell beiug such 
as to be easily recognized, and not even the genus appearing in the Atlantic, 
it is Mr to conclude that it had migrated from its head waters ip the Pacific 
during a period when the oceans were connected. We have a right, there- 
fore, to infer that during the lifetime of existing spedcs there va9 a period 
when the present separation between the two oceans did not exist. We 
mav conclude that species as old in creation as Malta ringens may be found 
still living in each ocean ; and there is, therefore, no necessity for creating 
" representative species," simply because, according to the present configu- 
ration of our oceans, we do not see how the molluscs could have travelled to 
unexpected grounds. 

100. In voL vii. of the Pacific Bailroad Reports, part 2, is the Geological 
Beport, presented to the Hon. Jefferson Davis, then Secretary of War, by 
Thos. Antisell, M.D. He states reasons for beUeving that during the Eocene 
period the Sierra Nevada only existed as a group of islands ; that ita final 
upHfting was after the Miocene joeriod ; and that during the wh<de of that 










Digitized by VjOOQ IC 


period the coast-range was entirelj under water. The Miocene beds an 
aboTe 2000 feet in thickness, and abound in fossils generally distinct from 
those of the eastern strata. There is nothing in Calilbmia answering to the 
Northern Drift of the countries bordering on the Atlantic. The molluscs of 
Dr. Antisell's Survey were described by Mr. Conrad, pp. 189-196. He 
remarics that ** the fossils of the Estrella Valley and Sta. Hes Mountains are 
qmte distinct from those of the Sta. Barbara beds, and bear a strong resem- 
blance to the existing Pacific fauna. The Miocene period is noted, both in 
tue eastern and western beds, for the extraordinary development of Pectin 
nidm, both in number, in size, and in the exemplification of typical ideas.'' 
It also appears to be peculiarly rich in Arcadas, which are now almost 
banished from that region, while they flourish farther south. The large 
Amusiwn eaurinum and the delicate Pecten hastahts of the Vancouver district, 
as well as tiie remarkable Janira dentata of the Gulf, may be regarded as a 
legacy to existing seas from the Miocene idea; otiierwise the very few 
Pectinids which occur in collections along the whole West Coast of North 
Ainerica is a fact worthy of note. Mr. Conrad has '* no doubt but that the 
Atlantic and Pacific oceans were connected at the Eocene period;" and the 
fossils here described afford strong evidence that the connexion existed during 
the Miocene epoch. All the species here enumerated (except Pecten deserti 
and " Anomia subcostata '') were believed to be distinct irom those collected 
by the preceding naturalists.

AS before, the fossils appear to be in very bad condition. The succeeding 
palaeontologists who have to identify from them are not to be envied. Theii 
principal value is to show what remains in store for future explorers. The 
extreme beauty of preservation in the fossils collected by CoL Jewett, rivalling 
those of the Paris Basin, and sometimes surpassing the conspeoiiic living 
sheUs, makes us astonished that so large a staff of eminent men, employed 
by the Government, made such poor instalments of contribution to malacolo- 
gical science. The plan, too often followed, of remunerating naturalists, not 
according to the skilled labour they bestow, but according to the number ot 
" new species " they describe, b greatly to be deprecated. Further knowledge 
concerning the old species may be more important in scientific inquiries than 
the saere naming of new forms. It is generally a much harder task to per- 
form, and, therefore, more deserving of substantial as well as of honourable 

101. The shells collected on the North Pacific Raiboad Survey were in- 
trusted to W. Cooper, Esq., of Hoboken, New Jersey, for description : Br. 
Gould being occupied with preparing the diagnoses of the N. Pacific E. E. 
species. Judge Cooper was at that time the only naturalist in America known 
to be actively c :igaged in studying the marine shells of the West Coast, of 
which he has a remarkably valuable collection. He had rendered very valu- 
able service to the Smithsonian Institution by naming their specimens. Un- 
fortunately, there is such great difficulty even in New York city (of which 
Hoboken is a suburb) in obtaining access to typically named shells, as well as 
to many necessary books *, that, notwithstanding the greatest care, errors of 
determination are almost sure to arise.

Judge Cooper had derived great assistance from the British Association Report^ and 
has communicated many corrections iu it. In the alterations of synonymy, and in 
defining the limits of specific variation, I have had the benefit of his counsel and ex- 
perience; and have rarely felt compelled to differ from him. £aving himself collected 
extensively in the West Indies, he had excellent opportunities of comparing fresh 
specimens from the now separated oceans. I was fortunate enough to meet his sod. 
Dr. J. G. Cooper, at the Smithsonian Institution, and to examine the types of the 
species he collected (which are here enumerated) with the. advantage of his memory 
and knowledge. His later contributions to the malacology of W. America will be 
afterwards enumerated : his valuable Treatise on the Forests and Trees of North 
America will be found in the Smithsonian R^orts, 1858, pp. 246-280.

Cocper, [s^iie. Urcdlum, Mart This being a remarkable instance of a 
"representative species," it requires to be minutely criticized. Judge 
Cooper compared nis specimen with 130 eastern shells, and noted the differ- 
ences with great fulness and accuracy. A series of MiddendorlT s Pacific 
dieUs having been brought to England 1)y Mr. Damon, and sold at high 
prices, I made a searchmg comparison of one of them with the eastern 
specimens furnished me by Judge Cooper and other most trusty naturalists. 
According to the diagnosis of middendorffiiy it should be referred to C. de- 
cemcostatu8y Say, and not to the De Fuca* species, as it agrees in all respects 
with the eastern peculiarities quoted, except that the riblets near the canal 
are rather more numerous and defined. As it might be suspected that 
Mr. Damon's shells were mixed, I have made a similar comparison with a 
shell from theN. W. coast, sent to the Smiths. Inst, by Mr. Pease, and with 
the same resuh. On examining the specimens in the Cimiingian Collection, 
in company with A. Adams, Esq., we were both convinced that the eastern 
and western forms could not be separated. In the similar shells collected 
by Mr. Adams in the Japan seas there are remarkable variations in the de- 
tails of sculpture.]

Dr. Kennerly died on his return from a three years' exploration ; and the 
civil war has thus far delayed any further publication. The materials have, 
however, been thoroughly investigated. They consist principally of dredg- 
ings in Puget Sound. On reference to tl^e maps published by the U. S. 
Coast Survey, it will be seen that this inland sea consists of a remarkable 
labyrinth of waters, fiord within fiord, and only indirectly connected with 
^6 currents of the Pacific Ocean. It might therefore be expected to furnish 
US with the species of quiet migration, and perhaps with those still living 
from a period of previous altered conditions. No doubt it will furnish new 
nateriab to reward the labours of many successsive naturalists. The pre-

maturely closed inyestigations of Pr. Eennerlej are only the beginning of s 
rich harvest. Dr. George Suckley, late assistant-surgeon of the U. S. army, 
was appointed to complete the natural-history work, after his lamented 
death. A complete list of the species collected will be found in the fifth column 
of the YancouYer and Califomian table, v, infrd, par. 112. The particulars 
of station, &c., and all the knowledg^e which the laborious explorer had col- 
lected, are lost to science. It is quite possible that some of the species here 
accredited to Puget Sound were obtained in neighbouring localities in tho 
Straits of De Fuca. The specimens are in beautifully fresh condition, and 
of most of them the animals were preserved in alcohol. The following are the 
shells first brought from the Vancouver district by the American N. W. 
Boundary Commission, the diagnoses of new species being (according to 
custom) first published in the Proceedings of the Ac. Nat. Sc. Philadelphia.

Besides adding more than 70 marine species to the Vanconver branch of the 
Califomian fauna, from specimens in good condition, without a single bal- 
last or exotic admixture, the confirmation of many species, which before 
rested only on the uncertain testimony of the U. S. E. E. labels, and the 
affiliation of others which, on the same testimony, had been wrongly assigned 
to distant and erroneous localities, was no slight benefit to science. The 
land and freshwater species of the Expedition will be found tabulated, with 
others, in the separate lists ; par. 115.

ploring the regions south of the political boondarj, similar explorations, on 
a less extensive scale, were being made under the direction of the British 
Government. The naturalist to the British North American Boundary Com- 
mission, during the years 1858-1862, was J. K. Lord, Esq., r.Z.S. He made a 
very valuable collection of shells in Vancouver Island and British Columbia, 
the first series of which was presented to the British Museum. The new 
species were described by W. Baird*, Esq., M.D., F.L.S., in a paper com- 
municated to the Zool. Soc., and published in its ' Proceedings,' Feb. lOth, 
1863, pp. 66-70. — Another series of shells, from the same district, was pre- 
sented to the Brit. Mus. by the Lords of the Admiralty, collected by Dr. Lyall, 
of H. M. Ship * Plumper.' Two new species from this collection were describe d 
by Dr. Baird, in a separate paper, P. Z. 8., Feb. 10th, 1863, p. 71. The new 
species from Mr. Lord's collections have been drawn on stone by Sowerby, 
The figure-numbers here quoted correspond with the proof-copy kindly fur- 
nished by Dr. Baird. — A third series was collected by Dr. Forbes, R.N., in the 
same Expedition. After Mr. Cuming had made his own selections, this passed 
into the ordinary London market. It contained several species of peculiar 
interest. The following are the (supposed) new species of the Survey: —

* It 18 due to the memory of Dr. Kennerlej, as well as to the other natnrah'sts con- 

nected with the yarious American surveys, and the officers of the Smiths. Inst., who so 

generously entrusted to the writer their unique specimens for comparison with the 

Xiondon museums, to state, that (with two exceptions) the new marine species of the 

British Survey would have been published long before the appearance of Dr. Baird's 

paper, but for the derangement of the IT. S. natural-history publications, consequent on 

the secession movement. Although the Smithsonian Inst bad offered to present to 

the Brit. Mus. their first series of duplicate specimens from these expeditions, which 

was exhibited at the Manchester Meeting of the Brit Assoc., where this Ueport whs 

called for, no notice was given to the writer of the valuable results of the British 

survey; and it was only through the private kindness of Drs. Sclater aod Baird that 

he was prevented fh)m adding to the list of synouyms, already, alas ! so numerous 

and perplexing. 

f These species are named after places, not after persons, as would be supposed 
by the termiaations. gQ

The ooUections made on the British Survey are peculiarly valuable to the 
itadsnt in consequence of the great perfection of the specimens. They have 
generally been obtained alive, and are often the finest known of their kinds. 
The occturence, however, of a specimen of the tropical Orthalicus zehra^ 
marked " Vancouver's Island,^ in Mr. Lord's collection*, is a useful lesson. 
When such reliable data are thus found possessed of adventitious materials, 
it will not be regarded as a slight on the collections of the most careful 
naturalists when specimens are regarded as of doubtful geographical accuracy. 
In Br. Lyall's collections there also occur specimens of the well-known PateUa 
MageUaniea and Trophon MageUanicus, chily marked " Vancouver's Island," 
though no doubt collected in ^e passage round Cape Horn. The naturalists 
of the American Expl. Expeditions generally travelled across the continent.

present object by far the most important, both as relates to the number of

** State Geological Survey," under the direction of Prof. Whitney. To this 
survey Dr. J. G. Cooper (whose collections for the Pacific Railway Explora- 
tions have abeady been reported, vide pp. 697-601) was appointed zoologist, 
and Mr. W. M. Gabb (formerly of Philadelphia) palaeontologist. The friendly 
relations established with both these gentlemen at the Smithsonian Institu- 
tion not only put them in possession of the special desiderata on the present 
branch of inquiry, but have resulted in nnreserved interchange of facts and 
opinions, by means of which a large instalment of the malacological results 
of the Survey can be embodied in this Report. Dr. Cooper has not only ex- 
plored the whole coast and the neighbouring islands from Monterey to San 
Diego, but has dredged extensively from shoal- water to 120 fathoms, keeping 
accurate lists of all acquisitions from each locality. Having an artist's 
pencil as well as a naturalist's eye, he has drawn the animals from life, and 
already subjected many of them to dissection. The war has to some extent 
suspended the operations of the survey ; but it is confidently expected that 
the State will do justice to herself by issuing, with suitable illustrations, 
the full results of her officers' labours. The first public notice of the mol- 
luscs appears in the Proc. Cal. Ac. N. S , Nov. 3rd, 1862, pp. 202-207. 
Here Dr. Cooper, speaking of the new species, writes ^ith a modesty which 
is not always credited to American naturalists by Europeans, — ''As they 
may have been collected either by the N.W. Boundary burvey or at Cape 
St. Lucas, it has been considered safest, in order to avoid confusion, to send 
specimens or drawings of them to [the writer], that he may compare 
them with the above collections, and decide whether they are really new." 
He gives valid reasons, however, for describing the following soft Mollusca. 
Unfortunately for French and German naturalists, the diagnoses are in 
English only. 


2u2. StraUgus (n. g.) inermis, n. s. More highly organized than any other genus 
of OpisthcSranchiata : creeps slowly among tne grasses in the muddy parts 
of San Diego Bav, looking like a large caterpillar. Not uncommon. 

203. JPieurophylUdia CeUiformcaf n. e. Closely resembles P. Imeata of S. Europe. 

"From tiie distance of locality there can, however, be no iaentity of 
apecies." [P] Numerous in Dec., crawling and burrowing on sandy 'flats 
in San Diego Bay; none in Jan., after the floods. [Dr. Cooper writes that 
the body of fresh water was so great in some places as to kill the marine 
molluscs for a considerable distance beyond the estuaries, and thus mate- 
rially fldter the pre-existent fiuma.] 

204. Doris montereyenstSy n. s., 6-10 fin., adhering to sandstone. Monterey Bay, 

very rare. Small specimens in San Francisco Bay, Fnck, 
bO^. Doris (Asteronotus) sanguinea^ n. s. Under stones in San Diego Bay ; rare. 
204. Doris (? Asteronotus) (dahastrtna, n. s. Under stones in S. Diego Bay. One en, 

204. Dmis {? Acttnocychu) StmdiegensiSf n. s. Very active among grass on mucL-> 

filats near low- water mark, San Diego Bay ; common before the flood. 

206. .^olis (?FlabeUina) opalescens, n. s. Common among grass in San Diego Bay. 

205. jEoUs (fPhidiana) todkiea, n. a Among algffi on rocks outside San Diego 


207. TrUxmia Palmeri, n. s. San Diego, common '^in same localities as the Di^ 

pkyUidia. Named after Mr. Edward Palmer, a zealous naturalist^ who 
assisted me while at San Di^go."

Dr. Cooper's second paper " On New or Rare MoUusca inhabiting the Coast 
of Cdifomia," in the Proc. Cal. Ac. N. S., Aug. 17, 1863, contains (English) 
descriptions of the following species. He observes that *' Santa Barbara and 
Santa Barbara Island are very different in the groups of animals inhabiting 
Ihem, although the island is only thirty-five miles from the mainland. 
Vatdina hla-nd is twenty-four miles from the mainland, and the molluscs 
are very different from both the mainland and the other islands, being the 
richest locality on our shores."

Dr. Palmer sent a yalaable consignment cf shells collected by him between 
San Diego and S. Pedro to the Smithsonian Institution. Dr. Cooper obtained 
permission to send the first series of duplicates, duly numbered, for identi- 
fication, to the Smithsonian Institution. This inyaluable scries was lost in 
the ''Golden Gate.'' The gold was recovered, and much of it stolen ; the far 
more precious shells remain, unnaturally located, in their native element — 
a puzzle, perhaps, to palaeontologists in some coming age. Other series, though 
not BO complete, have since been received in safety; and through the libe- 
rality of the Califomian Survey and of the Smithsonian Institution, as well as 
throagh the energy and kindness of Dr. Cooper, they are already being dis- 
tributed to the Gumingian Collection, the British Museum, the museums at 
Cambridge, Mass., Philadelphia, Albany, Montreal, &c., as well as to the col- 
lections of. working naturalists. The stations being now discoveied, it is to be 
hoped that in a few years Califomian shells will cease to be objects of great 
rarity in this country. At the request of Dr. Cooper, in order that he might 
proceed with other departments of his labours, all the new species which have 
been seen in England have been described in conjunction with those from 
other sources. On those which are only known here by the beautiful drawings 
sent by the collector, it would be unsafe and premature to impose a name. 
The duignoses are being published in the Proc. Cal. Ac. N. S., and should be 
accredited to the zealous zoologist of the Survey, rather than to the mere 
artist-in- words who endeaTours to represent their forms to the reader. It 
will be understood that the lists now to be presented, though corrected to the 
date of going to presS| are still incomplete; and that the information has been

eomp3cd from Dr. Cooper's letters received at different times, without oppor- 
tunity for his revision. Should errors, however, have escaped detection, they 
will, no doubt, be corrected, and omissions supplied, in the forthcoming Re- 
ports of the Survey. The species either new to science, or now first found in 
the Galifomian branch of the fauna, are as follows : —

The information on station, &c., which Dr. Cooper has sent with regard to 
previously known species, will be found incorporated in the general table of 
the fauna. The following notes, extracted from his letters, are too valuable 
to be omitted : — 

Haliotis CahfomieTms, '^ This form is so rare that I think it only a var. of 

HalioHs, Several specimens fit>m the Farallones present characters inter- 
mediate between corrttgata, mfescensj and Kamtschatkana. It is not jet

There are also several species which are quoted in Dr. Cooper's letters^ or 
appear from his fetches to be quite distinct, or at least new to the fauna : 
Lat they have not yet been sent for identification. Among these the following 
are the most important. The MS. numbers refer to the tracings which Dr. 
Cooper kindly copied from his original drawings. Where a " — " appears, 
the information is derived from his letters only.

In Prof. Whitney's Preliminary Report on the Survey, Proc. Cal. Ac. p. 27, 
May 4th, 1863, he states approximately as the result of Dr. Cooper's mala- 
cological labours^ up to the close of 1862 : —

Other supposed Califomian species not yet collected 65 

In a SurVey conducted with such care, even negative evidence is of some 
importance, though not conclusive. Dr. Cooper has not been able to obtain 
the following species : — 

Digcma Evatmi, 

StrigiUa oamaria, [Mr. Nuttall's specimens were probably Atlantic] 
Venus dispar.

105. Having now presented to the student an analysis of all that is yet 
known of the results of public surveys, it remains that we tabulate what Ilbs 
been accomplished by private enterprise. Mr. J. Xantus, a Hungarian gen- 
tleman in the employ of the United States Coast Survey under the able 
direction of Professor Bache, was stationed for eighteen months, ending July 
1861, at Cape St. Lucas, the southern point of the peninsula of California. 
It is a source of great benefit to natural science that the Secretary of the 
Smithsonian Institution is also one of the acting members of the Coast Survey 
Board ; and that a harmony of operations has always existed between the 
directors of these two scientific agencies in Washington. The publications 
of the Coast Survey have earned for themselves a reputation not surpassed by 
those of the oldest and wealthiest maritime nations. For obtaining data on 
geographical distribution, Cape St. Lucas was a peculiarly valuable station, 
beinar situated near the supposed meeting-point of the two faunas (v. B.A. 


Digitized by VjOOQ IC 


Bep.p.350); and also, not being a place of trade, or even an inhabited district, 
likelj to be free from human importations, although we should be prepared 
to find dead exotics thrown on its shores both by northern and by tropical 
currents. In his solitary and what would otherwise have been monotonou<« 
life, Mr. Xantus found full amployment in assiduously collecting specimens 
in all available departments of natural history ; having received ample in- } 
(tractions, and the needful apparatus, from the Smithsonian Institution, I' 
The bulk of the sheUs at first received from him were worn beach npeci- 
mens ; but afterwards several species were preserved, with the animals, in 
slcohoL Mr. Xantus generously presented the first series of the molluscs to the 
Smithsonian Museum, reserving the second for his native land. The first 
tvailable duplicates of the shells not occurring in the Eeigen collection will 
be found in tiie British Museum or in the Cumingian cabinets*. Although the 
▼hole series would have found little favour in the eyes of a London dealer or 
a drawing-room collector, it proved a very interesting commentary on the 
Eeigen and Adams Catalogues : it added about sixty new forms to the accu- 
rately located species of the marine fauna, besides confirming many others, 
whidi rested previously on doubtful evidence ; and disproved the intermixture 
of northern species, which, from the map alone, had before been considered 

The collection is not only essentially tropical, but contains a larger propor- 
tion of Central American and Panania species than are found in the Beige u 
Catalogue. This may partly be due to the accidents of station, and partly to 
this projecting southern peninsula striking the equatorial currents. It naust 
also be remembered that the Reigen Catalogue embraces only the liverpooL 
dirifiion of his collection ; and that many more species may have existed in 
that portion of the Havre series which did not find its way to the London 
markets. Mr. Xantus also obtained individuals of identical 8]>ecies from 
Maigarita Island, and a series containing living specimens of Purpura plano^ 
tpira (only thrown up dead on the promontory), from Socorro Island, one of 
tiie Revilla-gigedo group. A very few specimens of Haliotis and of Pacific 
shells may have been given to him by sailors or residents : they were not 
distinguished from his own series in opening the packages. The collection in 
not yet complete. In consequence of the Prench occupation of Mexico, it 
was with difficulty that Mr. Xantus himself '< ran the blockade'' at Manza- 
nello ; and he was compelled to leave there thirty-one boxes of shells, alco- 
holics, &o., subject to the risks of war. 

The Polyzoa were placed in- the hands of Mr. G. Busk for examination, 
and the alcoholics were intrusted to Dr. Alcock, the Curator of the Manches- 
ter Natural History Society. Neither of these gentlemen have as yet been 

* Daring the period that Mr. Xantus was out df employmtmt, owing to the derange- 
iDents of tM war, a portion of the duphcates were offered for mle, and will be found in 
tome of the jprinoipal ooUections.

As would be expected, the bulk of these species (203 out of 367) are the 
same as have been abready enumerated in the Reigen Catalogue. Of those 
which do not appear in the Mazatlan lists, no fewer than 37 appear in tho 
Panama collections (beside 10 others, known to inhabit the equatorial region).* 
Of those not quoted from Mazatlan, 34 are also found in the Acnpulco 
region, and 30 at La Pas. Of the whole number, 79 have also been found 
in South America, and 28 in the Galapagos. 38 have also been found in 
Margarita Bay, of which Pyrazus incistis and Siphonaria cequiUrata are Lower 
Calif omian rather than Gulf species ; but only 13 belong to that portion of 
the Lower Califomian fauna which is known to reach S. Diego, exclusive of 
the same number of Gulf species, which also stray into the 8. Diegan district. 
There are also 10 species, which (with more or less distinctness) represent 
West Indian forms. Of these, five, vii. UeUrodonax bimaciilatus, Erato 
MaugeriaSf Volvarina varia, Persicula imbricata and phrygiti, are new to tho 
Gulf fauna : the other five appear in the Reigen Catalogue. 

106. The most extensive collections in tho Vancouver district, both as far 
as the number of species and of specimens is concerned, have been made for 
the Smithsonian Institution by Mr. J. G. Swan, teacher at the Indian Reserve, 
Neeah Bay, W. T. For several years • valuable consignments have been 
received from him of shells collected at Cape Flattery, Port Townsend, and 
other stations. Latterly he has trained the native children to pick up shore- 
shells in large quantities. The labour of sorting and arranging these has 
been enormous; it has, however, been repaid not only by observing the 

* In eonsequence of boxes having been reoeired at diflTerent times, through the aocidentv 
of transit, it has not always been possible to ascertain with oortainty to whom, among

Tariations of form in large numbers of individnals, but bj the discovery of 
seTenl new species and the addition to the district-fauna of many others. 
The duplicates are made-up in series for distribution by the Smithsonian 
Institution ; and, though of the worst quality from a " collector's " point of 
new, they will be found very serviceable by real students, being carefully 
named in accordance with this Beport. He has now received a dredge, con- 
structed for him by Dr. Stimpson; and if he succeeds in training the young 
Indiana to use it, there is little doubt that a rich harvest of freah materials 
will shortly be obtained. Some of the collections were made on the neigh- 
bouring shores of Vancouver's Island, among which Fas a large series of 
Piiehypoma gibherosum, Chem., with attached Bivo'^ia, t>oth of an essentially 
Eastern Pacific type, the former having been brought from Japan by Mr. A. 
Adams. The Indians have taken a fancy to the opercula of this shell for the 
purpose of ornamenting their cadoes. As it is an article of trade among 
themselves, it is remarkable that so large a shell should have so long escaped 
the notice of collectors. Dead specimens have been washed-up in California ; 
but it is not known even to enter the Straits of De Fuca alive. The shore- 
pickings of the Indian children, which have already added 25 species to 
Bcience, are singularly frge from ballast-importations, although they present 
a few (supposed) extra- limital shells, probably washed-up by the ocean 
currents. The following are the species new to the Vancouver fauna ; the 
remainder will be found tabulated in the 7th column of the general Table, 
par. 112, infrd.

108. In 1860, previously to the commencement of the Californian Geo- 
logical Survey, Dr. J. G.(>ooper joined a military expedition across the Rocls*y 
Mountains, under the command of Major Blake, U.S.A. Having forwarded 
his notes and specimens to Judge Cooper, they were placed in the hands of 
Mr. Thomas Bland, of New York. He prepared a ** Notice of Land and 
Freshwater Shells, collected hy Dr. J. G. Cooper in the Rocky Mountains, &c.," 
which appears in the 'Ann. Lye. N. H. of N. York,' 18(51, pp. 362 et seq. 
We have here the judgment of one of the most distinguished students of 
American land-shells, whose labours on the tropical forms have accumulated 
facts so important in their bearing on the Darwinian controversy •. The fol- 
lowing is an outline of the Report, which is peculiarly valuable for the copious 
notes on the station and distribution of species : —

interest to the student of geographical distribution. While those of the 
eastern shore of the Gulf belong exclusively to the Mexican or Central Ame- 
rican fauna, those of the western present in their general features that form 
of the South American type which belongs to the region of the Andes. The 
contrast between the Glandinse and painted Buliroids of Mazatlan, and the 
small dull forms, or solid white shells of the peninsula, is evident even to the 
superficial observer. They are catalogued by Mr. Binney in the * Proc. Ac. 
Nat. Sc. Philadelphia,' 1861, pp. 331-333, and are as follows, outline-figures

110. At the time of the preparation of the first Report, not a single 
naturalist was known in Europe to be resident on the western slope of North 
America, to whom communications could be addressed on the subject of it. 
There was, however, even at that time, a '< Califomian Academy of Natural 
Sdences," which met at S. Francisco, and published its ' Proceedings.' This 
Academy is now in a flourishing condition, under the presidency of Col. L. 
Baosom. The general zoological department is under the care of Dr. J. G. 
Cooper; the shells under that of Dr. J. B. Trask, Vice-President of the Academy, 
whose name has already appeared in Judge Cooper's Report, anted, p. 597 ; 
and the fossils under that of Mr. W. M. Gabb. The corresponding secretary 
is Dr. W. 0. Ayres ; and the librarian Prof. J. D. Whitney, the director of 
the State Geological Survey. Already the nucleus has been formed of a very 
valuable collection, many of the critical species in which have been sent to 
England for identification. The coasting-trade between S. Francisco and 
many stations in L. California, the Gulf, and the Mexican coast, ofiers pecu- 
liar facilities for obtaining valuable information. Two of the contributors to 
the Califomian Academy require special and grateful mention. Dr. Wesley 
Newcomb (whose labours had greatly enriched the State Collection at his 
native city, Albany, New York, and whose researches among the AchatinellcB 
in the Sandwich Islands are well known) is stationed at Oakland, near Eran- 
dflco, and has already furnished valuable papers, an abstract of which is heie 
given, as well as emendations and additions to the British Association Report, 
which are included in their appropriate places*. The Rev. J. Rowell has long 
been a r^^ar correfipondent of the Smithsonian Institution, and has sub- 
mitted Uie whole of his West-coast collections for analysis. He has dis- 
played pecuhar industry in searching for small species on the backs of the 
larger shells, especially the Haliotids of the Califomian coast, and the Ostrea 
iridescms, which is imported in large quantities from Acapulco for the San 
Francisco market f. 

In the ' Proc. California Ac. Nat. Sc.,' vol. i. pp. 28-30, Feb. 1855, Dr. 
J. B. Trask published descriptions of Anodonta bandalli, Trask, Upper San 
Joaquin ; Anodonta trtangidaris, Trask, Sacramento River; Anodonta rotund- 
ovo/a, Trask, Sacramento Valley ; Alasmodonta Yvhaensis, Trask, Yuba River. 

In the ' Ann. Lye. N. H. New York,' vol. vii. 1860, p. 146, Dr. Newcomb 
describes the first Pupa found on the Pacific slope, viz. Pupa HoweUii, Newc. 
Kear Oakland, Cal. " Approaches nearest to P. ovata, Say." 

• The *' Chifon amieulafus,'' Newc., MS., - CrtmtochUon SteJUri. " Rare near 8. Fran- 
ciioo ; loniewhat more abundant in the Bay of Monterey." His ** Fanopma generoaa^** in 
the Albany Mueeum, was found to be Schizotharus NuttalUu 

t Af an instance of the way in which mistakes arise, may be placed on record a aeries 
of shells sent to Mr. Bousseau. of Troy, New York, by Mr. Hilman, formerly of that 
dtj, now a resident at San Francisco. They were sent as Califomian ; yet^ of the thirty- 
ibor species which it contained, only one could be called a native of tJiat province. AH 
the rest were tropical, and of that peculiar character which belongs to Acapulco. No 
doaht, the gentleman had obtained tnem from a trader to that dty. If only a few species 
hsd been sent, mixed with Califomian shells, they might have puzzled the learned ; for they 
were obtained, on the spot, by a gentleman of known integrity. As it was, the roaniitude of 
the error led to its dinoovery : but in how many similar cases such error is thought impos- 
able ! — SMgiUa camaria ; Donax carinatus^ puncio-stnatwt ; Ueterod, bimactuatus; CaU

in which occur several Califomian shells. The authoiitieB for the localities 
are not given, and the diagnoses are in English only. Considerable confusion 
often arises from the study of tertiary fossils wiUiout knbwledge of recent 
shells, and vice versd, Mr. Gabb's writings on the Cretaceous fossils of Ame- 
rica display an ability with which this paper is perhaps not commensurate.

have been identified, from Vancouver Island to S. Diego, arranged so as to 
show at the same time their habitat, and the principal collectors who have 
obtained them. The species in the first column were obtained by Prof. 
Nuttall; in the second, by Col. Jewett. The third column (marked B.A.) 
oontains the species tabulated from other sources in the Eirst Keport. Those 
to the right of the double column are the fresh explorations recorded in this 
Supplementary Report. The fourth column contains the shells brought by 
the Pacific Bailroad Expeditions, as weU as the species^sent to the officers ot 
the Smithsonian Institution by the Kev. J. Kowell and their various corre* 
spondents. The fifth column (< Ken.') contains the species of the American, 
and the sixth (' Lord *) of the British Nortxi Pacific Boundary Survey. The 
8e\'enth records the collections of Mr. Swan and his Indian children ; the 
last, those of Dr. Cooper in the Califomian Geological Survey. As a largo 
proportion of the species are as yet unknown, and the diagnoses will be found 
scattered in various periodicals, some of which are rarely accessible in this 
country, it has been judged needful to add a few words of description, with 
references to well-known books. By this means the student will have before 
him a compact handbook of the fauna, and will distinguish at a glance tho 
range of localities, and the amount of authority for each. Eor the full 
ijfnonymy, the previous pages of the two Eeports must be consulted.

113. It remains to tabulate the shells which have been received from 
special localities, south of the State of California, either by the writer or by 
the Smithsonian Institution ; vide Br. Assoc. Eep., par. 77. 

The promontory of Lower California has been so little explored, that the 
existence of a large inland fiord, in lat. 28^, was not known to the autho- 
rities. It appears that the whales have long delighted in its quiet waters; 
and those whalers who were in the secret carefuUy preserved the exclusive 
knowledge of so profitable a hunting-ground. All that we know at present 
of the molluscs of that region is from collections made at Cerros Island, by 
Dr. Ayres and Dr. Veitsch. They are mostly shore shells, and are sadly 
intermixed with an abundance of cowries, cones, strombs, and other clearly 
Pacific species, which throw great doubt upon those which may be truly 
from the coast. As it is manifestly a << hotbed of spurious species," nothing 
can safely be built upon the data, which present a singular intermixture of 
northern and southern forms. Excluding the Central Pacific importations, 
the lists stand as follows, the temperate species Jbeing distinguished (as in the 
first Report) by a ♦, the tropical by a t ; —

The shells of Margarita Bay, on the Pacific coast of Lower California, in 
lat 24**, have become known through W. Harper Pease, Esq., of Honolulu, 
Sandwich Islands. Through his labours we are likely soon to be favoured 
with accurate accounts of the distribution of species in the various parts of 
the Pacific Ocean. Already his researches have greatly enriched our know- 
ledge of the quaint fauna of the Sandwich Islands, from which he has elimi- 
nated the spurious species, and added those erroneously ascribed to California 
by previous naturalists. The principal trade from these islands is with San 
Prandsco ; and ** the coast," in Mr. Pease's writings, signifies the coast of 
GaUfomia or (generally) of Western America. Many of our best specimens 
of rare West-coast shells have been received firom him, and in remarkably 
fresh preservation. The Margarita Bay species were obtained by one of his 
trained collectors, and are as follows : —

Saxicava pholadis

and O, sucetn*(a, however, and the Polinicis Efcluziana indicate a connexMO 
with California which may have been, at a previous age, more direct than at 

114. (See first Keport, pars. 79-83.) Acapulco being notorious for the 
exotic species quoted in its fauna, it is desirable to examine all authentic 
collections from that prolific locality. The Smithsonian series were ob- 
tained by Dr. Newberry * (N,), after his Pacific R. R. Explorations (vids 
p. 593) ; by Mr. Belcher (5.) ; and by the Rev. J. Rowell (i?.), who obtained 
them principally from the valves of the large oysters. The private collec- 
tions of Judge Cooper, Col. Jewett (•/.), and other American naturalists have 
also afforded valuable information. The species from these various sources, 
which were also found by Mr. Xantus, are tabulated with his Cape St. Lucas

115. The Puhnonates of the Pacific slope not formed a special study 
with the writer of this Report, as they were «lready in the abler hands of 
Messrs. Binney, Bland, and other eminent Tiansatlantic naturalists. The 
qnnions of Mr. Binney as to synonymy, &c., with descriptions of new 
species and details of those previously known, were given in papers pub- 
lished in the • Proc. Ac. Nat. Sc. Phil.' as follows: — " Descriptions of American 
Land SheUs," Feb. 1857; ** Notes on American Land Shells," Oct. 1857, 
May 1858, Nov. 1858, July 1859 : and also in the * Proc. Best. N. H. S.,* 
•* Description of two supposed new species of American Land Shells," Apr. 
1857. These are embodied in * The Terrestrial Air- Breathing Molluscs of the 
United States and the adjacent Territories of North America,' vol. iv., by 
W. G. Binney, Boston, 1859. It was first printed in the 'Boston Journal 
of Natural History,' vol. vii., and is intended as a Supplement to the great 
treatise by his father, vols, i.-iii., on the same subject. It is impossible to 
speak in too high terms of commendation of the manner in which this work 
has been prepared and executed, and of the beautiful figures drawn by Otto 
• Kohler. The more matured views of the author were embodied in X\i*\ 
* Check-list of the Terrestrial Gasteropoda of North America,' published by 
the Smithsonian Inst., June 1860, of which a second edition was soon issucu. 
The species were di\idcd into thiee seiies, — (1^ tho^ of the Pacific cca^t.

from the extreme north to Mazatlan ; (2) those of eastern N. A., from the 
boreal regions to the Rio Grande ; (3) those found in Mexico, to which sixteen 
from the first series are added. The freshwater Puhnonates are catalogued 
by the same most industrious author, in the ' Check-List of the Fluviatile 
Gasteropoda of N. America,' which contains the MelaniadcBy Paludinidir, 
AmpullariadcBy Valvatidof^ and LimnmdcB ; the West Coast species being dis- 
tinguished by the letter W, and the Mexican by H. Mr. Binney next under- 
took a monograph of the Paltultnidcej &c., the proofs of which were widely 
distributed in 1862. Afterwards, assisted by the extensive series of speci- 
mens received from the Smithsonian Museum, and ^lith access to those of 
the principal public and private collections in the U. 8., and with the benefit 
of Say's types preserved in the Acad. Nat. Sc. Phil., he prepared a preliminary 
synopsis of the Limnmda;, with full sjmonjrmy, proofs of which were issued by 
the Smithsonian Inst., May 4th, 1863. Last of all, under date Dec. 9, 1863, 
the Smithsonian Inst, has distributed proof copies of a complete * Synopsis 
of the Species of Air-Breathing Mollusc^ of N. A., aa eliminated from their 
synonyms by Mr. Binney'*. Of all these works the author not only sent the 
earliest slip-proofs to assist in the preparation of this Report, but in several 
instances took the pains to write separately what related to the W. eoast^ 
and even sent the manifold -duplicate of part of the printer's copy. It is not 
considered necessary to tabulate each of these publications separately, as 
they can easily be obtained by post, on application to Professor Henry, 
Washington, D.C. The following liBt embodies— (1) the classification and 
nomenclature of Dec. 9th, 1863; (2) the synonymy as given in previous 
synopses ; and (3^ the localities and authorities supplied by Mr. Binney in 
MS. The following reservation requires attention :— " As a mere proof, 
irhich will undoubtedly receive many corrections, this list should not be 
quoted as authority, or referred-to as a published work."

• The first TransaUaatic attempt to rerise the genera of N. A. Selicida was made by 
Mr. Bland, in his " Bemarks on Classifications of N. A. SeUce* by European authors, 
and especially H. and A. Adams and Albers," printed in the • Annals of the Lyceum of 
Nat. Hist N. York,* Oct 1863. In an addendum, he gives a list of the Pacific species, 
with an account of two " genera", not represented in the eastern dirision. Mr. Binney, 
continuing Mr. Bland's labours, issues the species for the most part in the trinomial 
nomenclature, which now appears to be taking the pUoe of the Linnean binomW system. 
Ko attempt is here made to review the work, as the writer felt justified m doing with " 
reference to marine shells ; the only alterations made consisting of oorrecUons in some of 
the citations with which he happened to be more &miliar*

woodcuts, and contains the synonymy corrected from all the accessible types. 
Dr. Stimpson is at present engaged in dissecting the molluscs ; but none of 
his inyestigations haye yet been published. The following is a rSsunU of the 
West Coast species, from a proof kindly furnished by the author.

117. Of the West Coast species of Melaniadse we are unable to offer any 
Hst embracing the synonymy, as the materials are at present in the hands of 
Mr. Tryon for elimination, and his labours are not yet sufficiently advanced 
to fnmish a report. His Manual of the North American MelaniadsB will be 
pablished by the Smithsonian Institution. The animals of many species have 
aheady been dissected by Dr. Stimpson*. It is unfortunate that in the two 
most important branches of North Americcm freshwater molluscs, the Me- 
laniadffi and ihe Unionidae, there exists a radical difference of opinion between 
the leading writers, which has sometimes assumed the appearance of per- 
Bonal animosity. Malacologists east of the Atlantic, unwilling to become 
partisans when the leading nomendators of the rival schools are equally 
bonooredf have to a great extent declined to pay attention to the unexhausted 
liches of the American waters, regarding any settlement of the disputed 
points as hopeless. Dr. Isaac Lea, who has spared no expense in illustrating 
his publications of the results of a life-long study, follows the restrictlon8 
on Uie priority-rule allowed by the British Association Committee. Other 
"Writers, however, claim a certainty in identifying the supposed species of 
lUfinesque and other similarly inaccurate authors, which would be considered 
by most English naturalists as not warranted by the few loose words of de- 
scription given. It would be well if the student were permitted to start from 
the first carefully ascertained landmark, raUier than f^om the defaced tracks 
of the first hunter. 

In the Check-list of North- American Fluviatile Gasteropods, published by 
the Smithsonian Institution, June 1860, which contains the names of 405 
(supposed) species oiMelania,Liihasia, Qyrotoma,Leptoxis^ and /o, Mr.Binney 
assigns the following eleven to the West Coast. None of them are accredited 
to the eastern division. 

43. Melania bulbosa. Old. 
104. Mdania exigua, Conr. 
168. Melania Menkeana, Lea. 
174 Melania Netcherryi, Lea.

ferOf small var., teste Lea.] 

296. Melania Wahlamatensis, Lea. 

297. Melania Warderianaf Lea. 
360. Melania fusca, Raid. 

118. Dr. Lea's Check-list of the Unionidae (June 1860), after eliminating 
synonyms, assigns to America, north of Mexico, no fewer than 552 species 
of Unto, Margaritana, and Anodonta, The type-specimens of the species 
described by Dr. Gould from the United States Exploring Expedition were 
submitted to Dr. Lea's inspection, and confirmed his previous opinion that 
they were varieties of those before known. The U, famdictu, Old., he pro- 
nounced to be a South- American shell ; but it appears, without note, in the 
Check List, no. 133, probably by oversight. The only widely diffused species 
is the long-famed " pearl-mussel" of Uie Conway and other British streams. 
The following seven are accredited to the Pacific coast : — 

• See his very intereating and important paper " On the structural Characters of the so- 
cdW Melanians of North America," in the * American Journal of Science,' vol xzrriii., 
Jaljr 1864, pp. 41-^. It appears that the sexual system is quite distinct from that of the 
ordinaij Ctenobranchiate Qasteropods, and approaches the (^olobranchiotes.

New York, well known for his special devotion to this department, has con- 
sented to prepare a Manual of the CyrenidsB inhabiting American waters. 
All the accessible materials from the West Coast are in his hands for exami- 
nation. The first part of his *' Monograph of the Species of Sphanrium of 
North and South America" is printed in the * Proc. Ac N. Sc. Phil.' 1861, 
pp. 402 et seq.t and contains quotations of five species, nos. 4, 7, 9, 10, 11, 
with synonymy, from Washington Ter., Oregon, and California. He haa 
kindly (in advance of his intended publications) furnished to Mr. W. G. Bin- 
ney the following MS. ** Synopsis of the Corbiculida of the West Coast of 
North America," with liberty to publish in this Bcport. It is here condensedi

120. Of the tertiary fossils throwing light on existing species no addi- 
tional information has yet been published. We cannot but hope that tho 
researches of Mr. Gabb, on the fossils collected by the Califomian Geoloi^ical 
Sorvej, will develope relations of great interest between the existing and 
former conditions of the continent. The Astorian fossils described by Mr. 
Conrad ttom the U. S. Exploring Expedition (vol. x., Geology, Philadelphia, 
1849), and tabulated in the first Report, p. 367, belong to the Smithsonian 
Institation, but were not discovered there in 1860. All of them, however (in- 
duding the indeterminate species), are figured in the atlas of plates. They 
resemble the fossils of the Pacific Eailroad Expeditions in being very imper- 
fect, for which reason the following criticisms may prove erroneous. The 
general aspect of the collection betokens the Miocene period.

Japanese form. 

* Mr. Prime aarips no reason for changing Dr. Gk>uld'8 Lucina into a Cvcfwi, nor any 
•Qthority for " Caliromia." He was, perhaps, misled by the artisf a engravea references to

121. To correct the general table of "MoUusca of the West Coast of K. 
America" (First Report, pp. 298-345), and the deductions founded upon it 
(pp. 346-367), would involve the necessity of , reprinting a considerable por- 
tion. The student, being now in possession of all the known sources of 
fi-esh information, can with his own pen strike out the spurious species, alter 
the synonyms, insert the newly discovered forms, and make the requisite 
corrections in the classified results. 

122. With regard to the tropical fauna, the researches at Cape St. Lucaa 
and in the interior of the Gulf of California, though leaving much to he 
desired, bear-out the general conclusions arrived-at in paragraphs 78-87. 
The evidence for the identity of specific forms on the Atlantic and Pacific sides 
of Central America has been greatly confirmed. Dr. Gt)uld writes, "The 
doctrine of local limitations meets with so few apparent exceptions that we 
admit it as an axiom in zoology that species strongly resembling each other, 
derived from widely diverse localities, especially if a continent intervenes, 
and if no known or plausible means of communication can be assigned, 
should be assumed as different until their identity can be proved (vide E. E. 
Moll. Intr. p. xi). Much study of living specimens must be made before 
the apparent exceptions can be brought under the rule." It has, however, 
to be borne in mind that the researches of modem geology clearly point to 
considerable alterations in the existing configuration of continents, and iii 
the consequent direction of ocean- currents, during the ascertained period of 
many species now living. Nor are we warranted in the belief that the 
existing fauna in any locality has been created at any one time, or has 
radiated from any single spot. To study the relations of living shells simply 
in connexion with the existing map of the world must lead but to partial 
results. The facts accumulating with regard to the British species, by 
tracing them through the northern drift (now found ^ven on the Snowdonian 
range), to the oldest crag deposits when Europe was contained in far difierent 
boundaries, show how altered may have been the configuration of the new 
world when the oldest of its molluscs were first created. Coordinately with 
the glacial period. Central America may have been a group of islands ; co- 
ordinately with the creation of Saancava pholadu and Chrysodomus antiquus, 
the gulf-weed may have floated between the Rocky Mountains in the 
archipelago of West America, and Japanese molluscs may have known how 
to migrate to the Mediterranean shores. Dr. Gould's position may there- 
fore be accepted in theory ; yet, in practice, the " imperfection of the geological 
record"*, and even of our knowledge of existing species and their variations, 
demands that the greatest caution be exercised in building results on deduo- 
tions from our ignorance. Already the fossil Malea ringens of the Atlantic 
has proved a " Rosetta Stone " to interpret the Cyprcea exanthema, Purpura 
patulaj and other Caribbean shells of the Pacific ; and as the geology of the 
West Coast advances, so may we expect to find traces of previous denizens of

on this subject in Darwin's ' Origin of Species,' and the information given in Lyell't

AmericaD waters, which have bequeathed some species now flourishing, and 
olbers dying-out, to the existing seas. The present faunas of West America 
bfe perhaps the most isolated on the surface of the globe ; yet, if we knew 
the ancestry of each specific form, we might find some first appearing with man 
en this planet, others first living even in historic times, others tracing their 
descent from remote periods, and it may be very distant localities, in the ages 
of the Miocene, possibly even of the Eocene oceans. These suppositions are 
not set forth as theories, but simply to guard against interpretations of facts 
based on conclusions which may be only the results of our necessarily 
imperfect information. 

123. With regard to forms offering local peculiarities sufficient to dis- 
tinguish them from correlative forms offering equal peculiarities in some other 
fauna, we are by no means warranted in assuming that these have spmng 
from different creations. If a race of men, migrating to a new continent, in 
a Tery few generations, or even in the next, develope an essentially different 
phjfsique, it is fair to conclude that molluscs, borne by a change of currents to 
a distant region, or steadily migrating to the extreme limit of their con- 
ditions of life, will abo change their appearance. If the publication of the 
** Darwinian Theory " has had no other effect, it has at least checked the pro- 
pensity to announce "new species" for differences which maj^ fairly be re- 
garded as varietal. It must also be borne in mind, that if the views of Mr. 
Darwin be only a theory, such also is the name required for the prevalent 
opinion of separate creations for all diverse forms. What indeed can we 
possibly know of the mode of original creation of a single species ? We can 
only prove that one or the other supposition best explains a certain class of 
facts. It is not necessary for a working naturalist to commit himself to a^i 
exclusive belief in either of these theories. He may perhaps best explain 
some facts by the dcJctrine of separate creation, others by that of natural 
selection. In either case it is his duty to trace- out, as far as possible, the 
limits as well as the powers of variation in every living form, and to guard 
against seeing that only which accords with his prevailing belief. 

124. The study of European shells, as they exist in Norway, in Britain, in 
the Mediterranean, at the Canaries, or as they appear at different depths 
and stations in our own seas, still more as they occur in the widely separated 
periods of the later and middle tertiary ages, is an excellent preparation for 
the examination of either recent or fossil faunas in districts where our know- 
ledge is fragmentary and unconfirmed. It may be safely stated that there are, 
in the American waters, many tropical forms from the West Indies and the 
Pacific shores, some temperate forms from California and the Atlantic, and 
many sub-boreal species in the Vancouver district and the European seas, 
not differing from each other more or even so much as forms universally 
allowed by malacologists to have had a common origin from Britain and the 
Mediterranean, from the Red and the Coralline Crag. 

125. It is interesting to observe that, notwithstanding the probable con- 
nexion of the oceans through the Hocky Mountains during the Miocene age, 
there is extremely little similarity between the special temperate faunas of 
East and West America. Not a single species has yet been proved identical, 
and the allied forms are but few in number. They appear as follows : —

126. When, however, we approach the region in which boreal and sub- 
boreal forms occur, many species are found in common, and between others 
there is but slight difference. Yet even here there are more British than 
Isew England species in the West-coast fauna. As might be expected, the 
British species are for the most part those which are also found fossil, and 
therefore have had time to diffuse themselves widely over the hemisphere. 
It ia, however, remarkable that many Crag species have reached Eastern 
Asia and West America which are not found in Grand Manan and New 
England. It is also extraordinary that certain special generic forms of the 
Crag, as Acila, Miodon, Verticordia, and Solariellay reappear in the North 
Pacific*. When seeking for an explanation of so remarkable a connexion 
between faunas widely removed in space and time, the correlative feu^t must 
be borne in mind, that the northern drift t, so widely diffused over Europe 
and Eastern America, has not yet been traced in the western region. The 
following Taole exhibits, not only the identical but the similar species be- 
longing to the northern faunas of the Atlantic and Pacific. In the Asiatic 
column, K denotes that the species occurs in the Kamtschatka region, J in 
Japan. In the second column, V signifies the Vancouver district, C the Cali- 
fomian, and I the Sta. Barbara group of islands. The species marked F

Fall particulars as to the range of the different species may be expected in 
Dr. Cooper's Report to the Califomian Geological Survey. One fact must, 
lujwever, be here specially noted, viz. the great peculiarity of the island-fauna. 
Although the Sta, Barbara group are so near the mainland, the dredge has 
not only produced many species not known on the continent, but also many

before considered as essentially tropical. Along with tliese are not only some 
species of types hitherto regarded as almost exclusively Asiatic, as Verticordia^ 
SolarieUa, and FtUvia modesta, but also some which belong to the sub-boreal 
district, as Luciiia horecdis, Venericardia horealU, and Crendla deeussata, Tho 
latter belongs to the British, and not to the N. England form. 

129. Of the blendingof the temperate and tropical faunas on the peninsula of 
L. California we are still in ignorance. All we know is, that at Margarita Bay 
the shells are still tropical, and Uiat at Cerros Island they are strangely inter- 
mixed. There is peculiar evidence of connexion between the faunas of the penin- 
sula and of S. America, not only in the land- shells (v. anted, p. 630), but in 
some of the marine forms. Beside identical species with wide range, as many Oa- 
lyptraeids, the following are coordinate between the North and South Pacific;—

Time and space do not avail for pointing out further relations with exotic 
faunas ; which indeed will be performed with greater correctness after l)r. 
Cooper shall have published his complete lists. 

130. For the sake of avoiding the inconvenience of trinomial nomenclature, 
the subgeneric and varietal names have often been cited in this Report instead 
of the generic and specific, in order that the exact form of the shell quoted 
might be more quickly determined. The diagnoses of all the new species 
here tabulated are written for the press, and will shortly appear in the dif- 
ferent scientific journals. Additional specimens will probably prove several 
forms to be conspecific which are here treated as distinct. In the present 
state of the science, absolute certainty is not to be attained. The object of 
the writer* has been principally to bring together the works of his prede- 
cessors, and so to arrange and describe the new materials that those who 
continue his labours may be able to draw their own conclusions irom existing 
data. In order to facUitate reference, a brief index is here given of the 
subject-matter of the former and of the present Reports. 

* The best thanks of the writer are due to Hugh Crnning, Esq., for the free use of hit 
collection ; to Messrs. H. & A. Adams, Hanley, R^e, and S^werby, for aid in identifying 
specimens; to the officers and naturalists connected with the Smithsonian Institution; 
to Dr. A. A. Gould, for very valuable corrections ; and generally to authors and friendi, 
who have kindly rendered him all the assistance in their power. He earnestly inrit€9 
criticisms on the subject-matter of the two Reports ; in order that they may be embodied, 
and errors corrected, m the Manuals of the West-Coast Mollusca which he has uudertaken 
to prepiire for the Smithsonian Institution.

Review op Prof. C. B. Adams*s * Catalogue of the Shells 
OF Panama'*, from the Type Specimens. By Philip P. 
Carpenter, B.A., Ph.D. 

A r^sam^ of this important contribul ion to onr knowledge of local 
faunas, and a comparison with the British Museum * Descriptive 
Catalogue of the Reigen Collection of Mazatlan Mollusca,' is given 
in the 'Report of the British Association* for 1856, pp. 265-281. 
Full series of the old species, and the first specimens of the new, 
were deposited by Prof. Adams in the Museum of Amherst College, 
which also contains similar series of the Professor's Caribbean coU 
lections. The second specimens of new species were sent to Mr. 
Cuming, and through his kindness were freely .used in preparing 
the Mazatlan Catalogue, thus avoiding the necessity of many syno- 
nyms. An instructive lesson in candour and forbearance* may be 
learnt by comparing together the works of any two naturalists of 
equal celebrity, or by comparing either of them with the types. 
With the best desires for accuracy, and the greatest care, it is hardly 
possible for an author to describe so that his readers shall ^ee. shells 
as he sees them. If this be true of such full and precise diagnoses 
•8 those of Adams and Gould, how much greater must be the diffi- 
culty to foreigners of recognizing shells from the biief descriptions 
of Broderip, Lamarck, and the older writers generally. The careful 

* Catalogue of Shells collected at Panama; with Notes on their Ssmonymy, 
Station, and Geographical Distribution * hy C. B. Ad4m8, Professor of ZooioTv. 
&c, in Amherst Collf>ge, Mass. Reprinted from the * Anuals of L} ccum of Nat. 
Hist N. Y.,' voL V. New York, 1852.

preservation of types therefore, and the interchange of specimens 
named from types, is of the first importance to save the time and 
ensure the accuracy of succeeding writers. The Smithsonian Insti- 
tution has fully recognized this principle by directing that the first 
available duplicate of all type species described from its collections 
shall be deposited in some museum open to students on the other 
side of the Atlantic. 

As the authorities of Amherst College had not taken any steps 
to figure their unique specimens, and as Prof. Adams's determina- 
tions of old species had not been verified, I made it my business 
(^when visiting America to deposit the first duplicate series of the 
Mazatlan Shells in the New York State Museum at Albany) to com- 
pare Prof. Adams's collection, on the spot, with his published book, 
in my copy of which I made my notes and sketches at the time. 
Every facility was afforded me by the Curator. I was allowed freely 
to handle the specimens in the presence of his assistant, and to draw 
the minute species under my microscope. I took with me for com- 
parison the drawings of the minute Mazatlan shells in the British 
Museum. The species being numbered in both the Panama and the 
Mazatlan lists, it is easy now to institute a comparison between them. 
They are here distinguished by the initials P. and M. 

P. I. Ovula avena. May be distinct from Radius variafjifU^ 
M.. 435, being much more stumpy, with a thicker lip ; but the few 
specimens are in poor condition, and the differences may be accidents 
of station. 

2. Ovula emarginata^Carinea e. Quite distinct from its Carib- 
bean analogue C. gibbosa, 

3. Ovula neglecta, C. B. Ad., is probably a small variety of /2a- 
dius variabilis. 

4. Ovula variabilis, C. B. Ad,^= Radius v., M. 435. 

5. Ovula, sp. ind., probably = rarta^t/tf, jun. 

6. Cypraa arabicula=i Jricia a., M. 438. 

7. Cyprcsa cervinetta^C, exanthema, M. 436. Having now 
examined a multitude of specimens from different stations on the 
west coast, which differ from each other quite as much as they do 
from the typical Caribbean forms, I am confirmed in the belief of 
tiieir identity. 

8. CyprcBa punctulata^ Aricia p. Erroneously given, in M. 
p. 374, as a probable synonym of A, arabieula. It is less thickened 
at the sides, with smaller spots. Although specimens of arabieula 
graduate into it at the back, it may always be known by the moutb, 
which has its teeth much further apart.

13. Erato scahriuacula, Stet. 

14. Marginella minor, Stet, M. 587. 

1 5. Marginella sapotilla. The Panama specimens collected by- 
Prof. Adams, and abundantly by others, more closely resemble M. 
pnmum than the tyfie M, sapoti/la of liinds, which is a much smaller 
shell. The Caribbean shells (which are found across the Isthmus 
at Aspinwall) differ only in having a sharper angle in the labrum at 
the posterior notch. Adanson's habitat, doubted by Prof. Adams 
(note, p. 41), is confirmed by specimens in the Bristol Institution 
brought from Sierra Leone by Chief Justice Kankine. The Pacific 
sheUs are probably conspecific, sufficient evidence being now in our 
possession that the two oceans were united at least as late as the 
JVliocene epoch*. 

16. Mitra funiculata, Stet. 

17. Mitra lens, M. 585. 

18. Mifra nueleola. Closely resembling young specimens of the 
Caribbean M. granulosa, 

19. Mitra solitaria, C. B. Ad. s^Zier liana s. Other specimens 
have since been found of this characteristic species. The " trans- 
verse ribs " can scarcely be said to be " obsolete anteriorly."

men of Subula V, ; but I think it distinct. 

27-^1. Sp. ind. A specimen of Eurytafulgurata, M. 455, is in 
the museum, as from Panama, but not of Prof. Adams's collecting.

33. Oliva araneosa=^ O, melchersi, M. 59 1 . Prof. Adams's shanty 
specimen can scarcely be distiugubhed from that which he marked 
" O. literata, Alabama." But the ordinary aspect of the shells O. 
reticularis from the Caribbean Islands, O. literata from the coast of 
the Southern States, and O. melchern from 'the Pacific, is sufficiently 
distinct (for the genus). 

34. Oliva inconapicua, C. B. Ad.^ Olivella t., M. 599. Some of 
the shells referred to this species from Panama, Mazatlan, and Cape 
St. Lucas graduate into the Caribbean O. oryza ; otlleri^into dwarf 
forms of O. gracilis. The species either needs revision from fresh 
specimens, or should be merged into O, gracilis, 

35. Oliva pellucida, C. B. Ad. Dead specimen ; differs from , 
Olivellap., Rve. 

36. Oliva porphyria, Stet. 

37. Oliva semistriata^Olivella s. Closely resembles O. co/tf- 

38. Oliva testacea=Jgaronia t,, M. 602. 

39. Oliva undatella^ Olivella m., M. 595. 

40. Oliva venulata. This shanty specimen is O, angulata, jun. 
The O. venulata, M. 593, is named by Prof. Adams juliettay as 
also by Mke. (non Duel.). The true O.julietta (Guacomayo, Mus. 
Smiths.) is the Pacific "analogue" of O.fusiformis, 

4 1 . Oliva volutella=iOlivella v. It is surprising that this species, 
so immensely common at Panama and up the coast, should not reach 
the Gulf, and that the equally common O, tergina of Mazatlan and 
O. gracilis of Cape St. Lucas and Acapulco should be rare elsewhere, 
while the larger Olives are found from Guaymas to the equator. 
O. dama (=^lineolata. Gray, C. B. Ad.), abundant at Mazatlan, was 
bought, not collected, by the Professor at Panama. 

42 Planaxis planicostata. Stet. Also immensely common at 
Panama, though absent from Mazatlan. 

43. Nassa canescens^ C. B. Ad. Having compared this unique 
specimen with P. 50, q. v., I can speak to their complete identity. 
The "pale grey" of the "interspaces" is due to the shell being 

44, 45. Stent. 

46. Nassa gemmulosa^^'M, 631, exactly. 

47. Stet. 

48. Nassa luteostoma=^M, 623. 

49. Nassa nodifera. Also found at Guaymas. 

50. Nassa pagodus, C. B. Ad. ( + AT. caneseens, P. 45) »« y. 
(? pagodus, var.) acuta, M. 625. It is certainly the N, decussate 
ol Kien., but probably not of Lam. Whether it is the Triton pago^ 
dus cf Rve. I am still unable to say, the type being apparently lost. 
We are bound to suppose that Mr. Reeve could not mistake so de-

cided a Nassa for a Triton ; so that if Lamarck's is a similar Easie lA 
species, the West American may stand as N, acuta. 

51. Nassa panamensis, C. B. Ad, The Professor rightly marked 
his duplicates " exilis, Pws." This abundant shell, having a Pisa- 
Doid, not a Nassoid operculum, probably belongs to Phos, Northia, 
or some genus not yet eliminated. N, obsoleta. Say, has a similar 
operculum, and appears nearly related. 

52. Nassa proxima. The unique specimen appears to be an ex- 
treme form of N, versicolor, P. 55. 

53. Nassa 1 scabriuscula, C. B. Ad. (non Pws.)=i\r. complanata, 
Pws. : V. P. 56. 

54. Nassa striata, C. B. Ad. The two type specimens, one young, 
the other adult, both belong to a variety of versicolor. The phrase, 
"kst whorl spirally canaliculate on the left side,'* simply expresses 
the ordinary character of Nassa, The specimens in Mus. Cuming., 
however, from another source, differ somewhat in the nucleus from 
the small form of N. versicolor. These = N, paupera, Gld., teste 
Gaming, and should take that name. 

55. Nassa versicolor, C. B. Ad., M. 632. The revolving striae 
vary so greatly in this species, as well as the size, obesity, and colour, 
that it is hard to assign its limits. The specimens marked versicolor 
by the Professor vary much more among themselves than the ex- 
treme ones do from his proxima and striata. The apex and early 
whorls of each are exactly the same under the microscope. It is pos- 
sible that the unique crebristriata, M. 633, is also an extreme variety. 

56. Nassa vnlsoni appears to be only a dwarf form of P. 53, 
N, complanata, 

57. Buccinum crassum=iPhos c, 

58. Buccinum distortum=^Clavella d, 

59. Buccinum insigne= Pisania i,, M. 659. 

60. Buccinum luffubre, C. B. Ad. The Professor marked this shell 
on his card ''MurexlV ; then '' FususV*; then " Fusus nodu- 
losus. Ad., n. B."; then " Buccinum (?) lugubre. Ad., n. s."; so that 
the old genera were sometimes as badly dedned as the new ones. It 
may rank with Pisania.

74. Purpura osculans appears to be the young of Bhizocheilu9

lUK Cofumbeila rvgosassAnachia r. This appears to be the 
commonest and most Variable species of the genus. The typical 
specimens are somewhat stumpy, with stout knobs. Then the knobs 
pass into long, compressed ridges, and finally change into narrow 
bars. These are wide apart, or close, or nearly evanescent ou the 
back. The shape passes from the stumpy to an acuminate form 
like casieilata. Some adults are more than twice the size of others; 
but the same variations are found in both extremes. The colours 
are generally laid on in patches on the knobby specimens ; in fine 
flames, <a the smoother ones. In all varieties, it is known from 
JUetuattt by the spiral striae over the whole surface ; and from varia 
by the shoulder, more or less developed mto a keel, ou the whorls of 
the spire.

spire, &ۥ

126. Triton chemnitzitss Arffcbucce ft am noflosum, M. 5S0. These 
shells are small and turreted. Those Prof. Adams marked " T, cin- 
gulatum. Lam., E. Indies," are much more like the Mazatian shells. 

127. Triton constrictiis= Distorfio e. The specimens of this 
group from the Pacific Coast, from the Gulf of Mexico, and from 
the China Seas are very difficult to discriminate. 

128. Triton Jusoides, This unique and very elegant shell can 
scarcely be called a Triton^ even of the Epidromus type. It may 
perhaps rank milu Euthria, but is peculiar in possessing a distinct 
anterior sinus, near the canal, like Rostellaria,

136. Murex dubius^=Muricidea dubia, M. 673. 

137. Murex erosus^^ Muricidea e, 

138. Murex radix =PhyUonotu9 r. The Professor's specimens 
of this species are remarkably fine, more nearly resembling the Gulf 
nigritua than the heavy stumpy shells usuaHy seen. His youn^ 
specimens are heavier, but more turreted, than the young nigritut. 
The opercula appear to have fewer frills ; but such differences may 
be due only to station. The specimens he marked ambiguus (with- 
out locality) belong to the typical nirritus. Phyllonotua radix and 
nigritus graduate into each other almost as freely as the latter does 
into ambiguus: v. M. 666, 

13^. Murex rectirostris. . This and kindred species run into each 
other too closely, when adult, to speak with any confidence on so 
young a specimen in bad condition. 

140. Murex recurviroatris. This specimen is also far too imper- 
fect to affiliate : v* M. 665. 

141. Murex regiu8^=Phyllonotu» r., M. 670. 

142. Murex salebrosug^ Vitularia «., M. 612. The curious group 
of Muricoid Purpurids culminates on the West American shores. U 
is represented in the north temperate regions by Cerastoma, on. the 
warmer shores by Chorus, and in the tropical regions by Vitularia, 
The Lower Californian Murex belcheri, Hds., belongs to the group. 
Dr. Alcock (who has succeeded the late Capt. Brown as Curator of 
the Manchester Natural History Museum) has pointed out very well- 
marked physiological distinctions between the two families, which 
are coordinate with the differences in the opercula. 

* Dr. Gray (Guide to MoUusca, pp. 39» 42) leaves the round-variced Ranellids, 
AS Apolion, in the Tritonidtf^ '*operc annular, nucleus subapical, within the 
apex ;*' but removes the sharp-variced species, as Ranetla, to the CtusidieUB, and 
figures the operculum like Bezoardicot " half-ovate, nucleus central, lateral, in. 
ternal." The operculum of R. catala. No. 132, is almost identical with Mwrex, 
and the shell accords with ApoUon; but R. nitida. No. 134, ^hich has very sharp 
varices, has its operculum vridely removed from Bezoardica, It is closely related

I have now observed in such a multitude of species belonging to dif- 
ferent families of Proboscidifers and Toxifers that I venture to assign 
it as the original type of their opercula, from which the special 
family forms are modifications of high development. Of the spiral

196. Cerithium famelieum. Confusion has arisen from the Pro- 
fessor having sent to Mr. Cuming as his type a shell Vhich does not 
answer to the diagnosis, and which is described as (? var.) mediolceoe, 
M. 382. Ten specimens are retained in the Amherst Museum, of 
which eight are of the uncinatum type, = M. 383, and two of the 
Cumingian. C. uncinatum, being an old species, is probably from 
the Atlantic or E. Indies : if this should prove identical, the name 
famelicum must be dropped ; if distinct, retained for the west coast 
nncinoids, according to the diagnosis. After an examination of a 
large series of specimens collected by Mr. Xantus at Cape St. Lucas, 
I am confirmed in the belief that the Cumingian shell is a dbtinct 
species, which must stand as C. mediolave, 

197. Cerithium gemmatum^sRhinoelavis ffcmmatus^M, ^9. So 
mach confusion has arisen from raising specific names to the generic 
peerage, that whenever a good distinct name has been given, it ap- 
pears best to retain it — the uubending rule of mere priority for work 
which is sometimes slovenly, and therefore best forgotten, notwith- 

198. Cerithium ?interruptum, C. B. Ad. (non Mke. = M. 388). 
Great confusion has arisen from this erroneous determination, as 
may be seen by comparing the Maz. Cat. in loco with the mono- 
graph of Sowerby, jun., who has redescribed the southern, highly 
sculptured forms of the true interruptum as C. galapaginia. 

198 and 199 are regarded by Messrs. Cuming and Sowerbj as 
varieties of 

200. Cerithium irroratum, C. B. Ad. (Gld. ipse et MSS., non 
Gld. in Expl. Exp.) = C. stercusmuscarum, M. 387. The aspect of 
the Panama shells is so different from that of the Mazatlan speci- 
mens that I did not wonder at Dr. Gould's opinion that they were 
distinct. He was, however, misled in affiliating the former to his 
C. irroratum, of which I fortunately discovered the figured type in 
the Smithsonian Institution, and which proves to be (according to 
Mr. Cuming) the C, obetum of Shy. sen., from the Philippines. It 
is fortunate therefore that the name may be entirely dropped. Some 
of the specimens of no. 198 graduate sufficiently closely to the Ma- 
xatlan form ; those of no. 1 99 are intermediate ; while those of 
no. 200 present a stronger but smaller shell, well armed with small 
nodules, which are not to be seen in the fine Gulf specimens.

20?. Cerithium pauperculum is a good, new species of Chri/salHrfa. 
The Professor probably did not recognize the Chemnitzoid apex and 
the Odostomoid plait. The following alterations may be made in 
the diagnosis : — Shell pale orange [not horn], with six [not five] 
keels on the spire ; spiral ridges anteriorly fainter [not obsolete] ; 
apex sinistral [not acute], of three Paludinoid whorls, the last large 
in proportion; columella efifuse [not canaliculated], with a long, 
slender, slanting plait.

206. Cerithium validum^Cerithidea varicoga, M. 395. The 
Southern shells, in all their changes, present such a different aspect 
from the Gulf specimens, that I am inclined to regard the form Ma^ 
gatlanica as distinct, of which C. albonodosa may prove a variety. 

207. TripJioris altematus, M. 391. 

208. Triphoris inconspicuus is scarcely even a variety of the last ; 
and does not differ so much as the specimens described under the 
same name, M. 392. 

209. Triphoris infrequent is not the shell described, under the 
same name, M. 393, but is the Cerithiopsis tuberculoid es, M. 557. 
It would have been strange if I had recognized the shell from the 
diagnosis ; for both of the specimens are dextral. The apex is nearly 
smooth. I forbear to redescribe nos. 392, 393 of the Maz. Cat., 
as they were separated principally in deference to Prof, Adams's 
authority, until more numerous specimens should have been examined. 

210. Turritella banksii=T. ffoniostoma, jun., M. 379.

' 219. Chemnitzia aculeu9, M. 521. 

220. Chemnitzia acuminata is a true Chemnitzia^ and not a Ch-y- 
salfifia, as supposed in the Br. Assoc. Report, p. 334. The name 
misleads, as it is a peculiarly hroad species. The vertex consists of 
three Paludinoid whorls, of which the apex is visible, projecting a 
little beyond the spire. The ribs, instead of " terminating abruptly 
on the periphery of the last whorl," become gradually evanescent 
rounii the base ♦. 

221. Chemnitzia ajinis, Comp. M. .523, which was identified 
from Mr. Cuming's specimen. The diagnosis needs the following 
corrections from the type. The "ribs terminate *' not very " abruptly 
at the periphery." Anteriorly very finely striated [not ** smooth "]. 
"Last whorl" not "angular at the periphery." Base prolonged. 
It is probably the adult form of my Chemnitzia undata, M. 531, the 
characteristic fine, waved, spiral striae having escaped the Professor's 
notice. The only difi'erence is that the ribs evanesce more suddenly 
in the Panama than in the Mazatlan shell, which may be due simply 
to age. 

222. Chemnitzia clathratulay part. ^ Chrysallida clathratula, M. 
513, which was identified from the Cumingian specimen. The spe- 
cimens preserved as types contain, along with this species, one of 
Chrysallida communis, one (almost certainly) of Chrysallida effuBa, 
M. 510, and one of Dunkeria subanffufata, M. 537. Some parts of 
the description appear taken from the latter species : e. g. the " five 
or six " spiral lines, of which there are only four in the Chrysallida ; 
and the angle on the " upper part " of the whorls, which in the 
latter are well rounded. 

223. Chemnitzia communis, M. 507. This is the type of the 
genus Chrysallida: v. M. pp. 416, 420. Prof. Adams's tray con- 
tains also one specimen of Chrysallida effusa, M. 5 10 ; one of Chrys. 
ielescopiumy M. 508 ; one of Dunkeria subanyulata, M. 537 ; and 
one which may be a variety of the latter, or a distinct species. 

224. Chemnitzia gracilior. The "well-impressed spiral line" is 
only seen in some of the whorls. 

225 Chemnitzia major belongs to the section Dunkeria, I counted 
eighteen (not twenty-four) ribs.

I could not find the " spiral, compressed ridge."

* As several errors are here pointed out in the diagnoses of small shells, it is 
right to state that Prof. Adams bad not the advantage of a microscope during a 
considerable portion of the work ; nor was the instrument a good one when ob- 
taiued. Moreover the incessant demands on his attention as Professor of Astro • 
Domy and Mathematics, as well as of Natural History, and his duties as State 
Geologist of Vermont, did not leave him much time for original research. What 
he accomplished during his short life is marvellous. Had that life been spared to

the produced apex. 

228. Chemnifzia itimifin. This species most nearly resembles 
aruleus, but is broader, larger, aud wiiU more ribs, of which I counted 
from twenty to twenty-two (not twenty-six). I should not call the 
whorls ** convex." They are, however, more rounded, and the base

is perhaps a variety o( panamensis,

231. ? Littorina angiostoma is a Fossarus. 

232. Littorina aspera, M. 397. The Mazatlan periwinkles, being 
in good condition, divide themselves very naturally into three 
species. The Panama specimens, being generally eroded, are not so 
easily dealt with. Of Prof. Adams*s specimens here retained, the 
majority belong to aspera, although several of the smaller ones are 
philippiiy M. 39 S. The young appear to be of both species mixed. 
The ** variety ** consists of the abnormal tall specimens of conspersa^ 
M. 396, with a few very large philippU intermixed. 

233. Littorina atrata. This abundant little shell is a Fossarus, 
of which the Professor's lAdeorbis abjeeta, no. 25 7> is a more ad- 
vanced form. It is possible that one of the FoMori described in 
Maz. Cat., nos. 404, 405, may be conspecific ; but among the mul- 
titude of specimens I could not find one with the nuclear whorls 
sufficiently perfect to decide. The shells vary extremely in shape 
and sculpture.

stumpy than the Mazatlan shells, but containing a few specimens of 
the same extreme forms.

more ribs, and not displaying the intercostal striulee. 

244. Rissoa Jlrmata, Another species of RtMoina, resembling 
R. stricta, M. 408, but smaller. The Professor did not observe 
the fine spiral sculpture, as described in no. 250 ; q. v. 

245. Rissoa fortis. A good species of Rissoina, differing from 
R.janus in the absence of spiral punctures. 

246. ? Rissoa ineonspicua, C. B. Ad., non Alder. The name 
being preoccupied, it b fortunate that the unique shell proves iden- 
tical with Alvania tumida, M. 414. I found twenty (not "twelve 
or fourteen '*) ridges, which are not " obsolete," but become fainter 
anteriorly. The two upper whorls are very finely cancellated. 

247. Rissoa injrequens. The unique specimen of this Rissoina 
is too much worn for description. It has more than the sixteen ribs ; 
and the diagnostic marks must be received with caution. 

248. Rissoa janus. The description of this Rissoina is drawn 
from a very small, dead, broken specimen, from which the sculpture 
is almost entirely worn away. The " var. a " should be considered 
as the type, being in perfect condition, and the diagnosis be altered 
as follows : — The " fine crowded spiral striae " are seen all over, as 
are also the " ribs," which on each whorl " appear as striae," and 
are not ** obsolete near the periphery." The diagnostic character is 
that the spiral striae are composed of rows of minute dots. 

249. Rissoa notabilis. After drawing this unique shell carefully 
under the microscope, and making copious notes on the diagnosis 
from the specimen, an untoward cough lodged it among the meshes 
of the Curator's carpet, whence I endeavoured in vain to extricate it. 
Thb unfortunate accident is, however, the less to be regretted, as I 
caa state with perfect confidence that it was exactly identical with 
another shell in the collection, P. 255, q. v. ; and with M. 498, 
Parthenia quinquecincta. The " concave summits " of the ribs imply 
that the ribs are sharp, with concave interstices ; and the " upper 
keel " is simply due to the angulation of the whorls. Though the 
hp was broken, the columellar plait, as well as the sinistral apeXi 
escaped the Professor's notice.

confounded with Rissoa inconspicuay Alder, and IRissoa inconspicua^ 
C. B. Ad., will not be needed, as the type belongs to another sub- 
order, and = Chrysallida ovulum, M. 512. The Professor did not 
observe its close relationship with his Chemnitzia communis. 

253. Cingula paupercula, C. B. Ad. A good species. 

254. lOingula terebeilumssParthenia exarata, M. 501. Although 
I took every pains, in preparing the Maz. Cat., to identify Prof. 
Adams's species, I was not prepared, in the writings of so careful a 
naturalist who had devoted special attention to the minute species, 
to find a Pyramidellid under Trochidse, especially with the mark 
*' apex subacute." The finding of a more perfect Mazatlan specimen 
enables me to add to the diagnosis : — " vertice nucleoso parvo, satis 
extante, declimter sito ; interstitiis carinarum transversim rugulosis; 
labro solidiore. Long. '087, long. spir. '057, lat. '038." 

255. 1 Cingula turrita ( + P. 249, Rissoa notabUis)=^Parthenia 
quinquecinctOf M. 498. When a shell is described under two genera 
in the same sheet, the advocates of unbending priority will find it 
difficult to decide. As each name belongs to a widely removed 
family, that last given is at least the most correct and distinctive. 

256. ILitiopa saxicola. The Professor states that this "shell 
has the appearance of a Litiopa ;" but it wants both the peculiar 
nucleus and the semitruncated columella ; also that the " labium 
has a distinct deposit," of which I could not see any trace in either 
of the specimens. It is probably a Cingula, 

257. lAdeorhis abject a. This is the adult form of the shell, of 
which P. 233, Littorina atrata, is the young. The striae are seen on 
the lower as well as the " upper part of the whorls." The umbili- 
cus, though " small " for an Adeorbis, is rather large for a Fossarus, 
to which genus the species undoubtedly belongs. 

258. Fitrinella concinna, I could not find the " more or less 
distinct ridge between the first two keels." 

259. Fitrinella eangua=:M. 305. The omissions in the Pro- 
fessor's diagnoses of this and other species, being supplied in the 
Maz. Cat., need not be repeated here : v. M. pp. 236-247. 

260. Fitrinella j anus. The Professor does not mention the fifth 
keel, which bounds the umbilicus, and within which are the " minute 
spiral striflB." The "transverse striae" are strong between keels 
2, 3, and 4 ; faint between 4 and 5, and between 1 and 2 ; and eva- 
nescent near the suture. 

261. Yitrinella minuta. The original type of this species accords 
better with Ethalia than with Teinostoma, to which I had referred 
the Cumingian type. 

262. Fitrinella modesta. The " modesty " of this unique shell is

coordiDate with considerable attrition, and an umbilicus tilled with 
dirt. It appeared to me regularly rounded, without any keel. The 
" few spiral strise " are probably the remains of what once covered 
the whole surface. 

263. FiMnella panamensis=iM. 295. 

264. Fitrinella parva=M. 296. 

265. Fitrinella perparva^M. 304. The coronation of the upper 
keel is seen (though not described) in the type specimen. 

266. Fitrinella regularis. The unigue shell can hardly be called 
*' subdiscoidal/' since the " spire is convex, moderately elevated." 
I could not find the ''impressed spiral line." It belongs to Ethalia, 

267. Fitrinella seminuda. The unique type of this species also 
is much worn. I could not discover the " minute striae of growth." 
Beneath, there are five spiral lirse, and a few spiral strise near the 
mouth. The umbilical region and the base have fine radiating distant 
striae. It comes nearest to F. carinulata, M. 309, but is distiuct. 

268. Fitrinella tricarinata. This unique type is also worn. 
The spiral keels are scarcely " prominent," that on the periphery 
being decidedly faint. The " transverse striae " are between the 
suture and the nearest rib. The umbiUcal striae are very faint. 

269. Fitrinella valvatoides. This species probably belongs to 
Ethalia. Beside the keels, there are three obsolete spiral lirae — two 
ou the base, and one above the periphery. The umbilicus is bounded 
by a long, thin callosity, which gives a character to the shell inter- 
mediate between the two genera. 

270. Solarium, sp. ind.a. Of the form represented by this 
species and the next I have been able to examine a large number of 
specimens collected at Cape St. Lucas by Mr. Xantus, and in the 
Gulf of Mexico. I know of no mark by which to distinguish the 
shells from the two oceaps. From each locality they vary greatly 
in the size of the umbilicus, and in the strength of sculpture, number 
of knobs, &c. I should consider them all as varieties of S, granu- 
latum. Lam. S, quadriceps, Hds., appears distinct, though it may 
only be an extreme variety.

283. Tvrbo rutilua. The unique type is in miserahle condition, 
to, which the "bright red with pale streaks" is owing. The shell 
may possibly have been originally a Pomaulax undoaua, which is 
truly a Lower Californian species. It appears, however, to be a 
favourite with sailors, as specimens are continually appearing, not 
only high and low on the West Coast, but also from the Pacific 
Islands. The specimens brought by Comm. Wilkes's U.S. Expl. Exp. 
were obtained in N. S. Wales I Prof. Adams's fragments were pro- 
bably due to ballasc 

284. Turbo aaxoatta^= Callopoma aaxoaum. This replaces the C,

California. The "var. depreaaum'* of P. Z. S., 1855, I believe to 
be really a Senectua from the Pacific Islands. 

285. Scalaria hexagona, C. B. Ad.: non Sbv., M. 564. The 
Professor's shell is (I think) one of the species I described in P. Z. S. 
from Mr. Bridges's collection ; but the distinctions in this genus are 
too critical to decide without comparison of types. Tins shell is 
broad ; whorls very separate ; varices long and sharp ; epirally 
finely striated. 

286. Scalaria obtuaa, C. B. Ad. ; ? non Shy. This also appeared 
to me one of Mr. Bridges's species. It is a very pretty shell, with 
close, sharp, coronated varices. 

287. Scalaria, sp. ind. a. Like the next, but larger, and with 
spiral striae between the extremely crowded, sharp varices. 

288. Scalaria, sp. ind. b. Of the Clathratula type, without spiral 

289. Scalaria, sp. ind. c, is probably the young of Ciraotrema 
funiculatum, M. 569, which, with its congeners, may be removed to 

290. Eiilima iota. This shell, which is a Leioatraea (not **^, Sty^ 
lifer'*), is probably distinct from the Mazatlan form, M. 555, which 
siiould stand as L. retfxta*

291. EuHma recta. The type is a yery good species of Leio- 
Mtraca ; but I doubt its identity with the Cumingian specimen, with 
which the Mazatlan shell, M. 550, was compared. It most resembles 
the L. linearis^ M. 554, with which it agrees in divergence and 
general shape ; but that is very much smaller, with the upper whorls 
more tumid. In the Professor's type of i. recta, I searched in vain 
for traces of the " two brown spots. They were probably thrown 
by defective light. The " two opaque spiral bands are simply the 
effect of the suture^ and the previous whorl showing through. For 
the Mazatlan shell, M. 550, 1 propose the name of L, involuta, 

292. Eulima eolitaria. This also is a Leiostraca, not "ISty* 
lifer,'* and accords exactly with the Leiostraca, sp. ind. a, M. 552, 
but not with the supposed L. eolitaria, M. 551. The latter agrees 
is shape with the unique Panama shell, whorl for whorl ; but its 
base and labrum are much more produced anteriorly. For this rea- 
son, it may be known as L. producta, 

293. Pyramtdella, sp. ind. This is probably the OheUscus de- 
scribed in Maz. Cat. no. 486. 

294. Pyramidella conica = Ohelucus eonicM, G. B. Ad., not 
M. 486. 

295. Naiiea ehemniteii=N, maroccana, M. 570. The Professor 
first labelled these shells ** N. ? maroccana, Chem.,'* but crossed it off 
in pencil. Another tray appeared (without number) labelled '* luui- 
fasciata. Lam." They all belong to the large West Coast form of 
maroccana, [N.B. The shells described in P. Z. S. as ** var. cali- 
/omica,*' on the authority of the late Mr. Nuttall, are (with others 
from the same source) undoubtedly from the Sandwich Islands. 
The Pacific specimens (of which I have examined many thousands, 
brought by Comm. Wilkes's E. E.) present a very different type from 
thoae of the west coasts of Africa and America ; but are regarded 
by Mr. Cuming as only a local variety.] 

296. Natiea f Urida, These shells are simply a pale variety of 
N. maroccana,

this Polinicei with the species of Recluz.

Lam.)= V, ebumeus, M. 354. The shells sometimes assume a ru- 
fous tint in the later whorls, in which state (if the Turritelloid apex 
be concealed) it is liable to be confounded with Aletes centiquadnu» 
Some of the Professor's shells belong to the latter species.

sharper columella than the ordinary W. Indian form, was found 
among the Professor's duplicate Panama shells ; but as it does not 
occur either in the catalogue or the collection, it was probably dropped 
in from the Jamaica series.] 

326. Hipponyx, sp. ind. Of the Professor's "two small speci- 
mens " marked "eubru/a, jun.," one is H, gray anus, jun., M. 350. 
The other may be the same, but is probably the young of H, bar- 
batue. Neither are sufficiently perfect to determine with confidence.

barbatus, M. 349; part to H. gray anus; part are too much worn 
to determine ; and one is a valve of Diseina cumingii. 

328. Hipponyx panamensis=H.antiquatus,M. 347, The species 
is very widely diffused, and varies greatly in each locality. 

329. Hipponyx radiata^ H. grayanus, M. 350. The collection

also contains a tray labelled " Panama : C. B. Ad. don./' in which 
are Hipponyx serratus, M. 346, H. barbatus, and Gadinia pentagtt^ 
niostoma, M. 270. This last name should he dropped, except as a 
rarietj of G. stellata, Shy,, which is the normal state : y. B. A. Rep. 
1857, pi. 7. f. 3, o-^. 

330. Calyptraa aberratu. The Professor candidly allows that 
*'iD texture this shell much resembles a valve of an Jnomia,*' which 
it undoubtedly is, the supposed "probably imperfect cup" being 
the ligamental pit. The laree muscular scar is very clearly de- 
veloped ; but the others are faint, as is customary in young shells, 
and might stand for either Anomia or Placunanomia, The valve is 
thin and glossy inside. The outside is smooth, excepting the lines 
of growth, and is encrusted with beautiful zoophytes. A tiny Ser- 
puUi, which has coiled itself close to the umbo, carries out the idea 
of a Caly ptrseid spiral apex ; but a careful microscopic examination 
displayed the true Anomoid nucleus, at a little distance from the 
margin, as is common in the Mazatlan specimens of A, lampe, 
M. 219. 

331. Calyptraa (Syphopatella) (upersa=:Galerus eonicus, very 
worn and young, with the lamina broken away. One of the speci- 
mens may perhaps be mamiUarU. 

332. Calyptrtea eepaeea^^'M., 345. 

333. Calyptrtea conica. These are dead specimens, of which a 
few may be the true Galerus eonicus, M. 332. But most of them 
belong to the brown-tinted variety of (the Professor's G. regularu^

336. Caiyptraa imbrieata. The two specimens are too much 
worn to affiliate with confidence, the cups being broken out. The 
outside is ribbed, with arrow<headed strife between the ribs. They 
probably = Crucibulum u, var. 

337. Caiyptraa maeulata= Crucibulum spinosum, M. 344. See 
the attempt to unravel the confusion in the synonymy of this family 
in Maz. Cat. pp. 264-295. Three specimens marked by the Pro- 
fessor ** C. maculata, var.," are young, dead radiata, no. 339. 

338. Caiyptraa planulata. This unique shell is simply a young, 
flat C. cepaeea, with the cup prominent, and the outside sculpture 
faintly developed, from living in a hollow place. The striae are not 
''obsolete around the apex."

346. Crepidula t hepatiea=C. onyx, M. 340. 

347. Crepidula incurva, M. 339. A very interesting series of 
specimens ; of which two or three are probably the tvi^sted form of 
C. onyx. One tray contains specimens adhering to other shells. 
One, fixed diagonally on a Calliostoma, takes exactly the arrow- 
headed sculpture of the var. CaL imbricata, Brod. Another, grown 
diagonally on Pisania gemmata^ has the general aspect of a Chiton. 
One, fixed on the back of its neighbour which has grown on a CaU 
liostoma, has the granular interruptions of the ribs transmitted 
through the first specimen. The same is true of one which has 
growu on another which was planted on a Pisania, One specimen, 
which had established itself on a Calliostoma, and began with normal 
ribs, is losing these at the margin, adopting the sculpture of the 
Trochid. An extremely twisted specimen in the tray of separate 
shells has a bifid deck. A young one had edged itself into the apical 
part of the deck, as into a maternal pouch ; so the old one made a 
fresh deck oyer it. 

348. Crepidula lessonii. Most of the specimens are of C. nivea^ 
var., M. 341. Two shelb, which have the apex perfect, display the 
characteristic nuclear riblets. One dark-coloured specimen may be 
a hybrid, and another (though too much worn for confident affilia- 
tion) appears to be (7. ungui/ormis. Among the duplicates, all the 
specimens which were perfect at the apex presented the niveoid 
nucleus, though white ; but generally the riblets were more or leas 
worn off. 

349. Crepidula squama. These are the flat form (mostly dead 
and worn) of C. nivea, M. 341. Some of them pass into lessonii. 
Some are highly coloured, and may be the young of C. onyx ; one 
even of C. incurva. One of the young shells in phial appears to be 
C. onyx ; but whenever the apex is perfect, it presents the typical 
riblets : v. Maz. Cat. in loco. 

350. Crepidula ungui/ormis. The apex being hidden in dead 
shells, which I was not at liberty to break away, 1 could only exa- 
mine one specimen, which appeared to be a C nivea, var., as sup- 
posed in Maz. Cat. p. 285. Of the loose specimens, scarcely any 
are sufiiciently perfect at the apex to speak with confidence. Most 
of them, however, have the characteristic painting of the variety 
squama ; and all may belong to the common species (C nivea), ex- 
cept one which is a true C. ungui/ormis, M. 342, on the back of 
another shell, and a few which are probably C onyx, var. Of the

351. Crepidula nivea, M. 341. The specimens are small and 
poor ; mostly rough, of the variety striolata passing into lessonii. 
Wherever the apex is perfect, it presents the characteristic riblets, 
bat is generally white, not brown as in most of the finely grown 
Mazatlan shells. 

552. Crepidula onculans. This is a pe-fect and extremely beau- 
tiful specimen of Scutellina navicelloif/es, M. 269. The Professor 
did not observe the non- spiral patelloid apex, and regarded the 
" navicelloid '* columella as an extremely narrow deck. To the diag-* 
nosis in the Maz. Cat. may now be added *' apice obtuso, sublceci ; 
vertice haud spiralis vix conspicuo.*' 

353. Crepidula ro9trata=C. ndunca, M. 338, ?non Sby. The 
examination of a large series of specimens from the temperate fauna 
has led me unexpectedly to confirm Mr. Reeve's opinion that they 
are distinct. The northern shell is C. adunca, Sby. {^Oamotia 
[Gray] 9olida, Hds.= C rostriformisy GId.) ; and the tropical shell 
must take the prior name, C. uncata, Mke. (= C. rostrata, C. B. Ad.»

and sides imbricated, not rugulose. Among the duplicates were two 
( if not three) species : — the principal one with side sculpture in lobated 
knobs, which may be named Lophyrus adamsii; a ?Tariety with 
simple knobs ; and a well-marked species without distinct side areaa^ 
which may be called Lophyrus tenuisculptus.

377. Anomia lampe, C. B. Ad. It is doubtful whether this is 
identical with the northern species, M. 219. 

378. Anomia tenuig. This is probably the young of the last 
species, and may give it a name, if new. It is doubtful how the 
diagnosis of the scars was made out ; as they were not visible iu 
either of the specimens retained, being encrusted with dead animal 
matter. They were not distinct even after its removal. 

379. Anomia, sp. ind. a. Probably the same species as the two 
last, although far too dead, worn, and young to decide. See notes 
on the variations of A. lampe, Maz. Cat. p. 1 68. 

380. Oitrea, sp. ind. a. The hinge notches of the upper valve 
fit between corresponding teeth in the lower. Inside rather flesh- 
coloured ; white, round margin. Scar kidney-shaped, dark in one 
valve, light in the other. A young valve is white, and as pearly as 
O. iridescens, M. 21 1. The species is best known by its tendency 
to make a very broad limb in the exterior coloured part, spreading 
out into palmations. A very voung specimen, though covered above 
with Membranipora, shows tlie characteristic corrugations through. 
It may stand provisionally as O. panamensis, 

381. Ostrea, sp. ind. b. This is probably a variety of O, pana^ 
mensii, but more coarsely grown, so that there is a smaller limb, 
without palmations. Wherever the sculpture appears, there are evi- 
dent traces of the peculiar corrugations. The inside has the same 
characters, both of hinge, colour, iridescence, and scar. 

382. Ostrea, sp. ind. e. Rather square hin^e, without plications ; 
one shell with an umbonal cavity. Pearly white. One specimen is 
tinted on the scar, which may become coloured in the adult. It is 
by no means "pentangular," and is more probably = 0. ru/a, Gld.» 
than O. columbiensis, M. 213. 

383. Ostrea, sp. ind . d. The shells are broader than the Mazatlan 
specimens of O. virginica, M. 212, probably from not growing on 
twigs. The younger shells are very like O. edulis ; the older ones

have hollow umbos. One long shell, first marked e, but altered to d, 
is the adult form ; several of the younger shells are doubtful. 

384. Ostrea, sp.ind. e.^Ostrea, M. 215. Being a good species, 
I propose the name of O. amara. The Professor's " small var." is

M. 72 {^earinatus, var., Hani, in Mus. Cum.), which I subse- 
quently affiliated to the supposed rostratus, Maz. Cat. p. 548, on the 
authority of Dr. Gould's specimen. We were probably both misled 
by the ** very sharp angle," which (as compared with the other form) 
J should call rounded^ and the "concave" surface, which I should 
translate into flat. The names have been altered in the Cumingian 
collection since the Mazatlan shells were identified ; but Mr. Hanley 
informs me that they are now correct ; that the D, eufminatus, M. 
72, is his own original carinatys; and that the D. eartnatus, M. 71 
(olim Mus. Cum.), which is certainly D. rottratus, P. 45 7> must

"West Indian specimens, I could detect no difference.

472. Tellina nncera-^Strigilla #. 

473. Tellina vicina= Heterodonax vicinui. The shells are la- 
belled T. versicolor by the Professor. They are larger than the ge- 
neral ran of West Indian specimens; but the form is probably a 
local variety of the old Heterodonax bimaculatus. 

474. Tellina, sp. ind. a. The doubt concerning ''concave" and 
^convex" probably arises from an error in description. 

4/5. Tellina, sp. ind. b. Looks exactly like the young of No. 4 74, 
but with lateral teeth. 

476. Tellina, sp. ind. e. Dead valves of T./elix, No. 465. 

477. Petricola cognata. More characteristic specimens from the 
same coast are affiliated by Mr. Cuming to P. pholadi/ormis, from 
which this would probably not have been separated had it appeared 
on the Atlantic coast. 

478. Saxicana Uenuis. The Panama shell is more like Petricola 
than Saxicava, having two teeth in each valve, one of which is bifid. 
Sowerby's species is called by Messrs. H. & A. Adams " Saxicava 
tenuis*' (ii. p. 349) and " Petricola tenuis'' (ii. p. 44 1). Shell with 
very fine radiating striae, crossed by irregular striae of growth.

484. Cumingia, sp. ind. J=Maz. Cat. tablet 107, p. 31 ; well 
rounded, with close striae. Probably distinct. 

485. Amphidesma bicolor^ Semele tvenusta, M. 41 (non A. Ad.). 
The "species" in this genus are often separated by very variable 

486. Amphidesma lellipticum^Semele e. 

487. Amphidesma proximum. The type is not quite so elliptical 
as the last species ; but as this is a very variable character (v, Maz. 
Cat. p. 28), I should regard it as the same. It is not the Semele 
proxima, M. 40 (=S,Jlavescens, v. Maz. Cat. p. 548). 

488. Amphidesma pulchrum=i Semele p» 

489. Amphidesma striosum=: Semele s, I should describe the 
shell as smooth, with very fine diagonal striae crossing the lines of 
growth. It has the general aspect of S, pulchra. The teeth in one 
valve are long and sharp. 

490. Amphidesma tortuosum^ Semele t. Teeth short and faint. 

491. Amphidesma ventricosum=: Semele v. The "zones" are very

"ill-defined." Teeth scarcely visible. It looks outside like a dead 
valve of Maeoma solidula. 

492. Crauatella gibboaa. Also found at Cape St. Lucas. 

493. Mulinia donaci/ortnir=:M. anffulata, M. 80. 

494. Mulinia ventricosa= Mactrella exoleta, M. 78. 

495. Lutraria elegan^= Harvella elegans; ascribed by Messrs. 
H. & A. Adams to Florida (ii. p. 378), from which I have never 
seen it. It is a rare, but (under different names) somewhat widely 
diffused west- tropical shell. Its '' analogue" from Florida and Ca- 
rolina is Ra'ita canaliculata, 

496. Mactra velata= Standella v. Fide M. 79. The "small 
variety" is conspecific. 

497. Anatina alia. This valve of Periploma may prove identical 
with one of the four Gulf species. The spoon is supported under- 
neath by a linear plate. 

498. Pandora comuta. It is singular that neither Prof. Adams 
nor Dr. Gould observed that the peculiar characters of this species 
are due to a fracture, producing a beak and sinus which are not seen 
on the lines of growth. The sentences about the " rostriform pro- 
jection," the " sinus," and the •* prominent angle," should therefore 
be erased from the diagnosis. The hinge-teeth consist of a long 
sharp tooth, very pointed, in one valve, fitting against a less prominent 
one in the other ; a slight ligamental tooth in the first valve only ; 
and a very long, sharp, clavicular tooth in each valve, running near 
the posterior margin, against the inside umbonal portion of which 
the ligament is attached. Should it prove identical with P. clamcu' 
lata, the earliest name (as being given in error) may advantageously 
be dropped. It is surprising that Messrs. H. & A. Adams have not 
divided the old Lamarckian genus even into subgenera. 

499. Fotamamya eequalis, 500. P, injlata, 501. P. trigonalis* 
These three forms of Azara differ in outline, but not more than do 
some other species of Corbulids and such shells as Trigona radiata. 
The teeth, pallial lines, and general characters are the same in each. 
The first two I should consider certainly identical ; and a large series 
of specimens would probably graduate to the third.

not shown in the lines of growth of an earlier stage. 

507. Corbula tenuis. Stet. 

508. Corbula, sp. ind. a. A very small angular valve, with sharp 
conceiktric ridges. It may belong to C, pustulosa, M. 32.

To the same species may be referred C. polychroma. We were mis- 
led bj tbe different appearance of the dead shell, and by the locality- 
mark in Col. Jewett*s collection. His specimens were probably from 
Panama or Acapulco. 

510. Solecurtus affinia^ M. 37. It is probable that this species 
IB identical with S. (^ Novaculina) caribbteus. The Ariquibo speci- 
mens of the latter in Mus. Amherst are more like the Mazatlan shells 
than those are to the Panama type. Shells from Cape Palmas were 
affiliated to the Caribbsean species by Mr. Cuming. 

511. Solen rudi9=-EnsateUa r. This interesting form passes 
towards Pkarella. It is called " Solena obliqua, Spengl., var.*' in 
Mas. Cuming. 

5 1 2. Pholas crucigera. With the general aspect ofBamea Candida. 

513. Pholas tubt/era== P/ioladidea t. Of the melanura type, with 
a solid tnbe fitting on to the ends of the cups. 

514. Pholas xylophaga. Of the Martesia type, without cups. 
Dorsal and ventral plates long ; umbonal plates moderate ; wave of 
the adolescent gape rather suddenly arched. 

515. Pholas , sp. ind. a. Col. Jewett's specimens of the 

same shell are named laqueata by Mr. Cuming. It is of the non- 
waved, concameroid type; without radiating sculpture; concentric 
lamellae beautifully frilled. 

516. Pholasy sp. ind. b. So like P. dactvlus that it might be 
taken for a worn valve from ballast. The sculpture-ridges are, how- 
ever, further apart ; hinge-chambers larger and more numerous, with 
a little twisted lamina beyond ; gape less conspicuous. 

517. Orbicula^cutningii=Diseina c, M. 14. 

The shells unfortunately are all loose, in trays, with the autograph 
names on tickets. Prof. Adams's West Indian collections are m the 
same condition ; and both series are arranged together, in zoological 
order, in the midst of the general collection. There is no evidence, 
however, that they have been handled since the Professor left them, 
none of the leading conchological writers in the New World having 
thought it needful to go out of their way to complete a review of the 
Professor's work. Amherst is situated on a branch railway, and is 
within an easy walk of Northampton, Mount Holyoak, and the deli- 
cioos scenery of the Connecticut River. In the Colleee buildings 
are also deposited the most complete series of the Fossil Footprints 
of the Connecticut River, and the mineralogical collection (including 
the meteoroiit«s) belonging to Prut. Shepherd.

It IB remarkable that, notwithstanding the zeal with which most of 
the old genera have been divided, to meet the wants of modern n;ala« 
cology, the genus Pandi^a^ Lam., has been left untouched by Dr. 
Graj, Messrs. Adams, and their follower, Chenu. Yet the species 
known to the elder Sowerby present three distinct types of hinge, 
which were well figured by him in his * Conchologicaf Illustrations.* 
Specimens and even species of Pandora (except of the well-known 
N. Atlantic forms) being very rarely seen in collections, it is pre- 
sumed that naturalists have had but few opportunities of studying 
them. Mr. Cuming having most kindly allowed me to examine the 
hinge of all the species in his collection, it has appeared desirable to 
propose two new genera, and also to group part of the typical species 
under a subgenus. 

It was at one time thought that the presence of an ossicle in the 
cartilage was a family mark of /inatinida, to which Myadora from 
Pandorida, and Tellimya from Kelliada, were consequently removed. 
One of the new genera of Pandorids, however, possesses a well-deve- 
loped ossicle ; and a small one is seen even in some species of the 
normal genus. 

The most highly organized structure in the family is found in the 
North American genus Clidiophora, which has both clavicle* and 
ossicle ; the next is the East- Indian group Coelodon, which wants 
both clavicle and ossicle, but possesses a tent-shaped dentition in the 
left valve. The simplest form is the well-known Pandora, which 
has neither clavicle, tent, nor ossicle ; but in the subgenus Kennerlia 
the ossicle is present. The genus Myodora is quite distinct, but 
connected with Pandora through Kennerlia.

In the dentition of the right v«lve this ^cmis resemhles CceJodon^ 
except that the posterior lamina is greatly developed, resembling a 
clavicle. The left valve wants the central tooth and chamber of that 

§enus. This structural deficiency, however, is compensated by the 
evelopment of an ossicle in the long cartilage. As far as is known, 
all the species are from North and Central America, and are swollen

This species is known from C. claviculata by the much greater 
posterior curvature of the beaks, and anteriorly by the beautiful tri- 
angular wing- like serrations of the margin, in which it resembles 
I'ellidora bumeti. The inside has elegant rays from the umbo to 
the dotted pallial line.

It is probable that these are simply yarietal forms of the well-known 
New England species. Say's name and Sowerby's excellent figure 
prove tluit the peculiar hinge of the genus was observed by both 
authors. Mr. Cuming gives '* Philippines " as the habitat of his 
specimens of C nasuta, probably in error. Mr. Hanley quotes it as a 
synonym of C. trilineata. An examination of a large series from Staten 
Island proves that the outline varies considerably. The tablet in 
the Nuttallian collection at the British Museum, marked Pandora 
punctata, belongs to this species. Young shells, when quite perfect,

is in Kennerlia. 

4. CliI)>iophora punctata, Conr. 

This very rare species was only known in England bv worn left 
^ves in the British Mnseum, and in Mr. Cuming's and Wfr. Hanley's 
collections. The first perfect specimens were dredged by Dr. J. 6. 
Cooper (Zoologist to tne Californian State Survey) at San Pedro. 
A yoang shell, sent by him to the Smithsonian Institution, displays 
a dentition agreeing in the main with C. irilineata. In the flat 
valve, the central and anterior teeth are close together and nearly 
parallel ; the anterior short, nearly obsolete ; the middle long and 
sharp, corresponding with the long, sharp tooth in the convex valve, 
which points to the outside of the anterior scar, instead of to the 
middle, as in C. trilineata. The (posterior) clavicle-tooth in the fiat 
valve b longer than in the Eastern species, with the cartilage on it 
for two-fiflhs of the length. In C. trilineata it lies by the side, nearly 
the whole way. The posterior margin of the convex valve fits between 
the clavicle and the margin of the flat valve. The ossicle is remark- 
ably long and thin. The panctures are extremely conspicuous even 
in this young, transparent, and papyraceous specimen ; and, what is 
more peculiar, the dried remains of the animal are covered with 
minute pearl-shaped grains of shelly matter corresponding with them.

The "posterior" dilated side of Sowerby is the "anterior" of 
Hanley. The species was constituted from a " very few specimens, 
all of them much worn down, as if they had been used as ornaments." 
The hinge therefore may not have been accurately observed. They 
were part of the Humphrey collection, and perhaps from the Califor- 
nian region. Judging from the shape (for no type has been disco- 
vered), it may be identical with C. punctata^ Conr.

Most of the original diagnosis must also be dropped, the parts ahore 
quoted being all that it is desirable to retain. The present descrip- 
tion is written from notes and drawings made on a careful examina- 
tion of the broken type. The lines of growth show that, so far from 
being " comute," the species is remarkable for the absence of beak» 
—the margins being more equally rounded even than in P. obtvsa, 
which in shape it somewhat resembles. The hinge is almost exactly 
like that of C. claviculata, jun., but differs in the somewhat greater 
proportionate length of the clavicle, and in the unwonted size and 
sharp pointing of the anterior tooth. The new name has been chosen 
to record this peculiarity, rather than follow the modern custom of 
naming from the author of the mistake. The best naturalists occa- 
sionally err ; but corrections can be made without affixing a false com* 
pliment in perpetuity.

The shells of this group vary considerably in shape and dentition 
in the different species ; but agree in this, that in the left valve there 
is a kind of tent, formed by a thin laminated roof lying on the top of 
two diverging teeth. It is hard even to guess what is the use of this 
(perhaps unique) structure ; especially as its opening is not towards 
the body of the shell, but directly facing the anterior adductor. It 
is seen at once on opening the typical species, which was well figured 
by Sowerbv, Sp. Conch, f. 22. In the aberrant forms it might easily 
be overlooked, and a glass is needed to detect it in small specimens ; 
but if it exists, the shell can be supported on a pin thrust into the 
** hollow tooth." "When more species are known, the group may 
require subdivision, the C.Jlexuosus especially presenting a marked 
transition to Clidiophora. In that genus the posterior part exceb 
in development ; in Calodon, the anterior. All the known species 
are from the Eastern seas, but are very seldom seen in coliectiona*

Under this species, of which the correct locality appears in the 

name, Mr. Sowerby quotes "a single specimen obtained at Island 

Muerte, W. Columbia, 1 1 fm., by Mr. Cuming." The hinge may 

not have been examined. The shell quoted does not now appear in 

the Cumingian collection, and probably belonged to Clidiophora

This species is the Eastern representative of P. rostrata, as is C.

tooth being very long, and the anterior short, bridged over to meet 
it at the whole leneth. In the Borneo shell, which is larger, the 
anterior tooth is rather longer, with the front margin of the ceilins 
more incurved ; but the differences are probably due to increased 
age only.

it is only a variety. 

Genus Pandora, Lam. 

It is proposed to limit thb genus according to the diaspiosis of Sow- 
erby, founded on Lamarck's. Succeeding naturalists have adopted 
the diagnosis, while they have included in it species to which it did 
not applv^. It presents a very simple type of hinge, as though the 
Fandori^ idea were gradually fading away towards jdyodora. The 
P. wardiana is the finest species in the group ; but it is scarcely 
typical, having the radiating grooves of the section KennerUa, The 
Lamarckian type is the Tellina intequalis of Linnaeus.

hidden in dried shells by the contraction of the cartilage. The first

Subgenus Miodon*. , 

Testa Lucinoidea, dentibus cardinalibus, ut in Cardiia, elongatis ; 
laterali antico parvo instructiat. 

This little group of species is intermediate in character be- 
tween Astarte, Venericardia, and Lucina, It first appears in 
the Great Oolite, where it is represented by Astarte (Miodon) 
orbicularis, J. Sby. Min. Conch, pi. 444. f. 2, 3. This must not 
be confounded with a second and true Astarte orbicularis^ by the 
same author, pi. 520. f. 2. It appears in Mr. Searles Wood^s 
Crag-series as Astarte corbis. The following is the only recent 
species at present known. 

9. Miodon prolongatus. 

M. testa parva, solida, tumida, compacta, albida ; ventraliter antice 
yalde prolongata, excurvata ; lunula longa, rectiore, baud impressa; 
umbonibus antice infiectis, obtusis, valde prominentibus ; margine 
dorsali postico parum excurvato; costis radiantibus x.-xii. latis» 
obtusis, marginem attingentibus, parum expressis, dorsaliter obso- 
letis, a liris incrementi concentricis, plus minusve distantibus, ex- 
pressis, hie et illic interruptis : intus, margine a costis plus minusve

Subgenus Adula, Add. (diagn. auct.). 

Testa inter Modiolam et Lithopkagum intermedia, cylindracea ; 
umbonibus obtusis; parte antica longiore; ligamento subintemoy 
yalde elongato ; epidermide hand testacea. 

Animal byssiferum, in cryptis affixum; musculis adductoribus 
xnajoribus, antico ovato. 

Constituted by Messrs. Adams for A. soleniformis, D'Orb., 
which very closely resembles the young of the Vancouver species : 
enlarged to receive the shells of Lithophagoid shape which are 

* 7%. fiiUav, smaller ; odovs, tooth.

Hab. Neeah Bay, abundant [Swan) ; Monterey {Taylor). 

On smashing a large lump of hard clay, bored by Pholads, 
Petricolids, &c., large numbers of this species, with a few of A» 
falcata f of all ages from '06 od wards, were found in situ. Several 
struggled for room in a single crypt. The umbos are abraded 
by the wide opening of the valves.

Hab, San Diego, 6 fm. ; Monterey, not rare in 20 fm., (in Cali-

Vancouver, Forbes. 

The specimens sent by Dr. Cooper were all of small size, and, from 
the intercalation of riblets near the margin, clearly immature. They 
presented the incomplete loop of the restricted genus to which Dr. 
Cooper affiliated them. Notwithstanding, as both Davidson and Wood- 
ward state that the young of the British species has the loop similarly 
open, it remained doubtful whether this might not prove conspecific. 
Messrs. Reeve and Hanley unhesitatingly pronounced them to be 
" eaput-serpentis, jun.," the latter gentleman stating that they pre- 
sented the peculiar form of that species which belongs to the Medi- 
terranean examples. Dr. Forbes, however, was fortunate enough to 
• 249

obtain an adult shell, which passed into the Cumingian Collection- 
Having removed the animal matter with great care, the loop wa» 
found to retain the form seen in the young shell, only perhaps stil* 
more open. This is the first recent species of the genus which has 
been discovered with a sculptured surface, and a£forai an instructive 
lesson not to rely ou external characters. 

Terebrahda unffuieula: 1, 2, outside views of Mr. Coming's adult specimen, 
natural size : 3, 4, inside views of the upper valve, slight! j magnified. 

The outline of the adult is much rounder, and the margin blunter, 
than in T. caput "Serpentis, Inside, the noncompletion of the some- 
what w-shaped loop is a very obvious character. This is large ir 
proportion, extending to about two-fifths of the length and one- 
third of the greatest breadth of the shell. It is bent upwards in the 
middle, as seen from the partly opened valves ; with a double wave at 
the sides, as seen from the direction of the opposite valve. Two spurs 
ascend from the crests of the side waves, as though preparing tc 
complete the loop. The similar Terebratella angu9tata from Japan, 
when of the same size as Dr. Cooper's specimens, has the loop quite 
continuous *.

(preserved in the British Museum), though the valves are closed, the 
prolongations are widely divergent, as when the bird utters its cheer- 
ful ** quack." The loose, thin epidermis appears to have covered the 
biU as well as the valves. Mr. Tryon had probably not seen a speci- 
men, else he could hardly have affiliated so veij aifferent a shell to 
PhokuUdea penita. The original specimen is said to have come from

blunt waves of growth. The shell was sent me as from Dr. Forbes's 
Vancouver collections, and is so quoted in the Br. Assoc. Rep. 1863, 
p. 607 ; but Mr. Cuming subseouently stated his belief that it came 
from Japan. It may be allowable to state that many of the species 
iucluded in Saxidomus by authors are more correctly rough forms of 
Tapes, of the decussata-type ; the true Saxidomi differing from that 
genus (as Callista does from Fenus) in having an additional pseudo- 
kteral anterior tooth. This is very evident in the young shell, which 
has a much rounder outline than tlie adult, and can scarcely be 
distinguished from Calliata, except by the absence of lunule.

an account of additional Specimens presented to

After the publication of the British Musenm Mazatlan Cntaloeue, 
the backs of several fresh Spondylus-Telves were examined by Mr. 
R. D. Darbishire and mjself. Among the specimens were several 
fchich were deemed worthy of being added to the national collection; 
they were deposited there, with a MS. appendix to the Catalogue, 
in 1858. As it is not judged necessary to print this separately, I 
hsTe (mth the permission of Dr. Gray) transcribed what should be 
placed on record, in hopes that it may not be judged out of place 
in the * Proceedings.' Those who use the Mazatlan Catalogue are 
requested to observe not only the corrections in the Appendix, 
pp. 547-552, but also those made in the Review of Professor C. B. 
Adams's Panama CaUlogue, P. Z. S. 1863, p. 339 ; and in the

Mr. Hanlej kindly sent for my inspection a perfect pair (as 
^'Lepion*^), which he had found nestling in a burrow in Spondylua. 
The hinge more resembles Cyclas (Lam.) than any other known 
genus. Its great peculiarity is, that the cardinal teeth, instead of 
radiating from the umbo, fall in the curve of the hinge-line, as 
though uniting the lateral teeth. The shell is too thin (being deeply 
indented within by the concentric waves) to make out the pallial 
line ; but no trace of sinus is visible. It may therefore rank, provi- 
sionally, under Kelliadte, although in other respects its affinities 
appear to be with (Edalia and Cooperella. The ligament appears 
little more than a prolongation of the epidermis. Beside the trans- 
verse cardinal teeth, there is in each valve a curved line, sHghtly 
raised Hke the end of a finger-nail, which bounds what would be the 
lunale in other shells.

Only one specimen was found of this beautiful little species, the

<)harp ribs in the direction of the slanting mouth. In the first whorl 

^e ribs are very close. It then assumes its normal sculpture, but 

there is nearly a whorl before there is any trace of incision. This 

appears to have begun as a slit, which was afterwards closed up. A 

band, marked off by ten transverse ribs showing stages of growth, 

encircles the shell as far as the hole, which is long find somewhat 

«**ctangular; but there is no band between the hole and the outer 

lip. The shell furnishes a complete transition to Rimula, It is

The fortunate discovery of a perfect young specimeiAuid some 
adult shells in the shell-washings of Professor Adams's collection 
enables us to explain the anomalies described in the Mazatlan Cata- 
logue, where the solitary dead shell was referred, with doubt, to 
Odostomia, in consequence of its truncated apex. It was not pos- 
mble to recognize in it Professor Adams's " Cingula/* since that was 
described as haying the apex " subacute," and the angular base anc* 
continuous peritreme were not mentioned. The nuclear whorls are 
sculptured as in Alaba supralirata ; but the vertex, instead of being 
persistent as in that genus, appears to be always decollated in the 
adult. The shell has the peculiar glossy texture of Diala,

sculptured like Fitrinella, with a very strong peripherical keel, and 
other smaller keels, decussated by radiating nigse. This mode of 
growth is exactly as in the young 'Tonnza ; but the adult must have 
been very distinct from any known species, and perhaps did not 
belong to any described genus.

It appears that Mr. Gaskoin was not acquainted with Phi« 
lippi's species, which had not then reached the Cumingian Collec- 
tion; as he pronounced M. Reigen's specimen to be new, and sug- 
gested the specific name in the Mazatlan Catalogue. It would have 
avoided a double synonymy, could the name taniata have been re- 
tained for the Samarang shell, and Mr. Gaskoin* s for this. The 
Cape St. Lucas shells vary as above inlicated.

Unfortunately for those who do not like to remoTC the non-teB- 
taceous portion from their Chitons, as they do from their other shells, 
the mantle-margin by no means affords a safe clue to the structure 
of the valves. Among the species of the genus Isehnochilon, Gray» 


Digitized by 



{ = Lepi(lnpJevru8i Add.,) known by the sharp incisor-teeth lying 
within a projecting lip, there are three types of mantle-margin, 
which may be conveniently separated as subgenera, to aid in the 
difficult task of describing; and identifying species. The typical 
forms, for which the name Ischnochiton should be retained, have the 
scales somewhat chaffy, and very finely striated. I. magdaletuU 
and /. sanguineus well represent the group. But another series have 
the mantle-scales imbricate and strong, as in Chiton^ Gray, (=Lo- 
phyrua. Add.,) from which they cannot be distinguished without 
dissection. For this Messrs. Adams's name Lepidopleurus may be 
retained in a restricted sense. It is uncertain what Hisso*s original 
genus was meant to include: his diagnosis applies to all Chitons 
with distinct side-areas and scaly margins. 

A third group, separated by Dr. Gray in his * Guide,' p. 182, as 
having the ** mantle-scales minute, granular," has been named 2ra- 
chydermon : it abounds in the Californian region. 

The specimens of L, adamsii were found among the duplicates 
named Chiton dispar by the Professor ; one was attached to Viacina 

Lepidopleurus tenuisculptus.

The outside of this shell so much resembles the young of Chitor, 
(Lophyrua) atokeaii, that specimens may have been distributed undei 
that name. Very few individuals were found.

The central valves in this species are normal ; but the posterior 
valve offers a transition towards Callochiton, the outside being con- 
cave posteriorly, the insertion-teeth short and the eaves callous.

With a strong general resemblance to I, elenensis, the differences 

in detail in the only two specimens examined, as above stated, ap- 

pear of specific importance. If only varietal, it is equally important 

to notice how much change is tolerated by the habits of the animal. 

It may be the shell called Chiton clathratushj Prof. Adams, of which 

there were no duplicates to compare. It offers a still more marked 

transition to Callochiton, the margin of the posterior valve being 

•omewhat pectinated by the great projection of the ribs.

As I have seen no published diagnosis of the very peculiar type of 

insertion-plates observed in this species, which has hitherto been too 

rare to allow working naturalists an opportunity of dissection, I have 

given a minute description. The plates of insertion, as well as the 

exterior eaves, are scalloped by the strong ribs, and alternate with 

them. In the posterior valve the eaves are flattened outwards, in 

closely appressed layers, the blunt, ill-developed insertion-teeth 

lying flat upon them. The valves easily separate from the mantle, 

when immersed in water. Outside, the species is easily recognized 

by the two strong ribs of the diagonal areas, the central pitted in 

somewhat branching rows, and the ribs on the curiously flattened 

posterior valve resembling a clenched fist.

Diagnoses op new Species op Molltjsks, from the Wesi 
Tropical Region of North America, principally col 
lected by the Rev. J. Rowell, of San Francisco. Bt 
Philip P. Carpenter, B.A., Ph.D. 

Of the new species quoted in the " Supplementary Report on the 
Present State of our Knowledge of the Mollusca of the West Coas* 
of North America," pahlished in the Transactions of the British As 
sociation, 1863, pp. 517-686, the principal portion (namely, thos< 
dredged by Dr. J. G. Cooper, Zoologist to the Californian State 
Geological Survey) are described in the * Proceedings of the California 
Acad. Nat. Sciences,' for 1864-65; those dredged in Puget Sound, 
during the U. S. North Pacific Boundary Survey, by the late Dr. 
Kennerley, are described in the ' Journal of the Philadelphia Acad. 
Nat. Sc' for the present year. The species obtained by the natu- 
ralists of the British Survey are described in three papers by Dr. 
Baird and myself, P. Z. S. 1863-65. The new species sent by 
Mr. J. Xantus from Cape St. Lucas, and by Mr. J. G. Swan from 
Neeah Bay, appear in the 'Ann. and Mag. Nat. Hist.,' 1864-65. In 
the same Journal are. described the new species which I found in 
Col. Jewett's collection. Those sent to Dr. Gould from the same col- 
lection had been previously analyzed in the * Proc. Zool. Soc' 1856. 
The above are the principal sources of fresh knowledge; but a number 
of species from the Californian province, which do not range under 
any of these heads, will be found in the 'Journal de Conchy liologie' 
for the current year. 

In separate papers communicated to the Zoological Society are the 
diagnoses of additional species from Prof. Adams's Panama and from 
M. Reigen's Mazatlan collections. The remaining species, from the 
tropical province, are embodied in the present paper. The types 
(unless otherwise stated) are in the Museum of the Smithsonian

An account of Col. Jewett's shells will be found in the British 
Association Reports for 1856 (pp. 226-231) and 1863 (pp. 53^^ 
539). The exact localities are often uncertain; but many of 
them have been fixed by subsequent explorers. Being generally 
vom beach-specimens, the diagnoses have been written (where- 
c?er practicable) from perfect shells, and especially from the 
beautiful series dredged by Dr. J. G. Cooper, in the Califomian 
State Survey. The types belong to Mrs. Boyce, of Utica, N. Y., 
and are at present in my keeping. The numbers, in the species 
from the temperate fauna, refer to the table in the British Asso-

P. compta, with a large proportion of the small shells of the

notwithstanding its nacreous texture.

This very beautiful species is easily recognized by the varicose 
lip, sloping oflF to a sharp edge; by the deeply cut posterior 
notch, giving the smooth mouth a hooked appearance ; by the 
sharp ridges, traversed by distant spiral threads; and by the 
flesh-tinted orange colour.

Hab. Panama (teste Jewett). 

Col. Jewett's unique specimen is not. mature. It is distin- 
guished from M. hamata by the smooth nucleus, waxen texture, 
rounder whorls, more equal distribution of the contour between 
ribs and interstices, and especially by the spiral sculpture^ which 
is faint in the hollows, but nodulose on the ribs. Mr. Cuming 
lias a specimen with the same texture, but of a rich brown 

Chemnitzia calata.

Hab. West coast of North America {Jewett). 

This beautiful and unique shell was probably from Panama ; 
but there was no locality-mark. It is remarkable for its deep 
iurrows and the suddenly shortened and spirally sculptured 
base. It is much larger and broader than the northern C. Virgo^ 
and differs in details of sculpture.

for April 1866.J 







The study of the recent and tertiary mollusks of the west coast 
of America is peculiarly interesting and instructive, for the fol- 
lowing reasons. It is the largest unbroken line of coast in the 
world, extending from 60° N. to 55° S., without any material 
salience e}i6ept the promontory of Lower California. Being 
flanked by an almost continuous series of mountain -ranges, the 
highest in the New World, it might reasonably be supposed that 
the coast-line had been separated from the Atlantic from remote 
ages. The almost entire dissimilarity of its faunas from those 
of the Pacific Islands, from which it is separated by an immense 
breadth of deep ocean from north to south, marks it out as con- 
taining the most isolated of all existing groups of species, both in 
its tropical and its temperate regions. When we go back in time, 
we are struck by the entire absence of anything like the boreal 
drift, which has left its ice-scratchings and arctic shells over so 
large a portion of the remaining temperate regions of the northern 
hemisphere, and also by the very limited remains of what can 
fairly be assigned to the Eocene age. The great bulk of the 
land on the Pacific slope of North America (so far as it is not 
of volcanic origin) appears to have been deposited during the 
Miocene epoch. Here and there only are found beds whose 
fossils agree in the main with those now living in the neigh- 
bouring seas. To trace the correspondences and differences 
21 321

betwelsn these and their existing representatives may be expected 
to present results analogous to those now being worked out 
with such discerning accuracy from the various newer beds of 
modern Europe. 

The first collection of Califomian fossils seen in the east was 
made near Sta. Barbara by Col. E. Jewett in 1849 ; but no ac- 
count was published of them before the list in the British Asso^ 
ciation Report (1863), p. 539. They consist of forty-six species, 
of which twenty-nine are known to be now living in the Cali- 
fomian seas, and others may yet be found there. The following 
ten are Vancouver species, some of which may travel down t* 
the northern part of California : — 

Margarita pupilla, Priene Oregonensis, 

Galerus fastigiatus, Trophon Orpheus, 

Bittium filosum, Chrysodomus carinaiuSf 

Lacuna solidula, C. tabulatus, and 

Natica clausa, C. dirus. 

Some of these are distinctly boreal shells, as are also Crepidula 
grandis (of which Col. Jewett obtained a giant, 3^ inches long, 
and which now lives on a smaller scale in Kamtschatka) and 
Trophon tenuisculptus (whose relations will be presently pointed 
out). So far, then, we have a condition of things differing from 
that of the present seas, somewhat as the Red Crag differs from 
the Coralline. But in the very same bed (and the shells are in 
such beautiful condition that they all appear to have lived on 
the spot, which was perhaps suddenly caused to emerge by 
volcanic agency) are found not only tropical species which even 
yet struggle northwards into the same latitudes (as Chtone 
succincta), but also species now found only in southern regions, 
as Cardium graniferum and Pecten floridus. Besides these, 
the following, unknown except in this bed, are of a distinctly 
tropical type, viz. : 

Opalia, var. insculpta. Pisania fortis. 

Chrgsallida, sp. 

From a single collection made only at one spot, in a few 
weeks, and from the very fragmentary information to be derived 
from the collections of the Pacific Railway surveys (described by 
Mr. Conrad, and tabulated in the Brit. Assoc. Report, 1863, 
pp. 589-596), it would be premature to draw inferences. We 
shall await with great interest the more complete account to be 
given by Mr. Gabb in the Report of the California Geological 
Survey. With the greatest urbanity, that gentleman has sent 
bis doubtful Pleistocene fossils to the writer, to be compared 
iirith the living fauna; but it would be unfair here to give any

This very elegant shell is like the least-sculptured forms of 
T. Barvicensis, from which it appears to diflFer in its extremely 
small nucleus. It is very closely related to T.fimbriatulus, A. Ad., 
from Japan, but differs in texture, and is regarded by Mr. Adams 
as distinct. It stands on the confines of the genus, there being 
a slight columellar twist, as in Peristemia.

bos ; canali recurvata ; lacuna umbilical i magna ; labro intus 
crebrilirato ; labio conspicuo, spiraliter rugose lirato. 

Hab. Sta Barbara, Pleistocene formation (Jewett). 

Col. Jewett's single specimen is in very fine condition, and is 
confirmed by a fragment obtained by Mr. Gabb, the palseonto- 
logist to the California State Survey. Although resembling 
Purpura aperia and congeners in the irregular rugose folds of 
the labium, and Siphonalia in the strongly bent canal, Mr. H. 
Adams considers that its affinities are closest with the Cqntharus 
group of Pisania, That genus is extremely abundant in the 
tropical fauna, but does not now live in California. It is the 
only distinctly tropical shell in the whole collection ; and its 
presence, along with so many boreal species and types, appears 
somewhat anomalous, like the appearance of Valuta and Cassi^ 
daria in the Crag fauna. It is distinguished from the extreme 
forms of P. insignia by having the spiral lirse pretty equally dis- 
tributed over the early whorls, by the close internal ribbing of 
the labrum, by the absence of the stout posterior parietal toothy 
and by the great development of the columellar folds. 

Note. — Unfortunately, during the long interval which has elapsed 
between the transmission of the MS. and receipt of the proof, the 
types have been returned to the owner, and (with the remainder of 
Col. Jewett' s invaluable collection of fossils) have become the pro- 
perty of a college in New York State. As they are packed in boxes, 
and at present inaccessible, I am unable to give the measurements ; 
but the unique specimens were drawn on wood by Mr. Sowerby for 
the Smithsonian Institution.^?. P. C, Montreal, Feb. 22, 1866.
