The following species are part of a collection received at the Smithsonian
Inst. from Real Llejos, and fill up gaps which existed in the Central Ameri-
can fauna at the time of the first Report :

Discina Cumingii. Caecum liratocinctum.

Trigona Hindsii.
Hemicardium obovale.
Crassatella gibbosa.
Kellia suborbicularis.
Barbatia mutabilis.
Noetia reversa.

The collections received at the Smithsonian Inst. from Panama consist, in the
main, of species already tabulated from that region. The following, however,
are new to that well-searched portion of the fauna :

Tellina striata (teste Cuming), Rowell, Pease.

Tellina (Angulus) amplectcms, n. s., Rowell, Pease.

Pecten aquisulcatus, jun. j bering : Rowell.

Cmna costata, Rowell.

115. The Pulmonates of the Pacific slope h.Lve not formed a special study
with the writer of this Report, as they were already in the abler hands of
Messrs. Binney, Bland, and other eminent T> ansatlantic naturalists. The
opinions 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 Shells," Feb. 1857; "Notes on American Land Shells," Oct. 1857,
May 1858, Nov. 1858, July 1859 : and also in the Proc. Bost. 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. U. 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
K o'liler. The more matured views of the author were embodied in the
' Check-List of the Terrestrial Gasteropoda of North America,' published by
the Smithsonian Inst., June 1860, of which a second edition was soon issuco.
The species were divided into three series, (1) those of the Pacific coast,


670 REPORT 1863.

trom 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 Pulmonates are catalogued
by the same most industrious author, in the ' Check-List of the Fluviatile
Gasteropoda of N". America,' which contains the Melaniadce, Paludinidcr,
Ampullariadce, Valvatidce, and Limnceidce ; the West Coast species being dis-
tinguished by the letter W, and the Mexican by M. Mr. Binney next under-
took a monograph of the Paludinidce, &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 with access to those of
the principal public and private collections in the U. S., and with the benefit
of Say's types preserved in the Acad. Nat. Sc. Phil., he prepared a preliminary
synopsis of the Limnceidce, with full synonymy, 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 Molluscs of N. A., as 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. coast,
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, B.C. The following list 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,
which will undoubtedly receive many corrections, this list should not be
quoted as authority, or referred-to as a published work."

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 division. 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 place of the Linnean binomial system.
No attempt is here made to review the work, as the writer felt justified in doing with
reference to marine shells ; the only alterations made consisting of corrections m some of
the citations with which he happened to be more familiar.

Mr. Binney as a small variety of Vancouver ensis, with stronger radiating and spiral lines ;
but in the MSS. sent for publication in this Eeport it takes rank as a species. Mr. Bland
considers the two identical ; yet in Add. Gen. the form is thus divided : "Iberus (Cam-
pylcea) sportella, in fam. HelicidtB" and " Disctis Vancouverensis, in fam. Stenopida"
In Albers it is divided as u MacrocycUs veUicata" " M. Pancouverensis" and "Helix

* So great is the difficulty of ascertaining (even approximately) the specific relations of
Succinece without a comparison at least of single specimens, that Mr. Binney considers it
safest, until series have been examined, simply to quote the species which have been de-
scribed by other authors. He has followed the same course with Ancylus, and for the
same reason.

possession of the entire malacological world, to be allowed a resurrection in the same
order. Surely burial for a given number of years ought to be allowed as evidence of
death, especially if the infant-name scarcely even breathed the air of use, and its resur-
