Abstract

During a visit by the writer to the Philippines in November, 1953, specimens of a large Lepidocyclina of paper-like thinness from the island of Cebu were handed to her for comment. External characters immediately suggested Lepidocyclina (Eulepidina) badjirraensis Crespin, from Badjirrajirra Creek, Cape Range, Exmouth Gulf, North-West Australia (Crespin, 1952). Thin sections prepared at the Bureau of Mines, Manila, confirmed this determination. A special visit was made by the writer to Cebu to collect specimens from the locality at Mantalongan. In company with Mr. Robert Grey and other members of staff of the Bureau of Mines, she set out from Cebu City for the locality, but owing to heavy rains, which brought about a sudden rise in the height of the river to be crossed, it was not reached. However, it was promised that a collection would be made at the earliest opportunity and forwarded to Canberra. These samples were received from the Director of Mines, Manila on 28th July, 1954.
