Abstract

This collection of fossils was made by Mr. H.J. Cook, Supervisor of the Lakes Entrance project during December, 1942. It consists chiefly of broken specimens of molluscan shells, the most important being a fragment of large Mitra, Fulgoraria ancilloides (Tate) and an almost complete specimen of Cypraea consobrina (McCoy). The importance of the discovery of the latter species is discussed in the report on my recent visit to the shaft, but the presence of the former (which had previously only been recorded from the Balcombian and has a length of 110 millimetres) in the present collection, again indicates that valuable information has been lost through inadequate sampling of a rich shelly zone in the Kalimnan stage.
