    Description: Rehder (1943: 199) pointed out, that Buccinum clathratum Adams & Reeve, 1848, is the type of the genus Metula H.& A. Adams, 1858. For the species congeneric with Buccinum metula Hinds, 1844, he proposed the generic name Antemetula, with that species as the type. Bucchium metula was described by Hinds from a specimen dredged by the Sulphur off the West coast of Veragua, at a depth of a few fathoms. There are no other records of the species from the American West coast. Smith (1904: 465) called attention to the fact that young specimens of Buccinum mitrella Adams & Reeve, 1848, match Hinds’s figure of B. metula. B. mitrella was described from one or more specimens dredged by the Samarang in the China Sea, at a depth of 10 fathoms, and has been recorded since from some more localities in the Indo-Westpacific area. Smith thought B. mitrella to be a synonym of B. metula, and the type locality of the latter possibly erroneous. It is, indeed, unlikely that a benthonic prosobranch inhabiting the West coast of America between the tropics will also occur in the Indo-Westpacific area, because the eastern Pacific barrier is practically insurmountable for littoral species, as Ekman (1935: 105—107) has shown. If therefore Smith’s opinion, that B. mitrella is a synonym of B. metula be right, the type locality mentioned by Hinds must be wrong. The Sulphur dredged in the China Sea also, and therefore it seems possible that material from that sea was confounded with shells from the American West coast.

Toxopeus of Bandung, Java, sent me a specimen of Nyctalemon for identification, but neither with the help of our collection, nor with the current literature did I succeed in ascertaining the correct name of this insect. On the contrary it appeared that, though the described forms of this genus clearly were of different value, viz., partly good species, partly geographical subspecies representing these species in restricted areas, no satisfactory division of the genus into species and subspecies had been given. Thus, Seitz' classification of the known forms into four species of which three are polytypic proved to make no sense. Therefore I resolved to study the genus more closely. In the ensuing correspondence Toxopeus gave me the benefit of his experience by providing references to relevant literature and quotations from

    Description: Five species of Vitrinellidae have been found in the Holocene shell ridges of Surinam. Of these, Vitrinella (Striovitrinella) cupidinensis,Cochliolepis surinamensis, and Solariorbis guianensis are new species, while Cyclostremiscus caraboboensis Weisbord is known from Pliocene beds in Venezuela and Teinostoma (Pseudorotella) schumoi Vanatta belongs to the Recent fauna of Guatemala. A paratype of Vitrinella cupidinensis spec. nov. was found on Olinda beach near Recife, Brazil, and clearly is a Recent shell. It seems possible, and even likely, that eventually all five species will appear to be still living in the same general region.

    Description: INTRODUCTION The members of the Ivory Shell genus Babylonia Schlüter, 1838, belonging to the Buccinidae, are characterized by more or less slender buccinoid shells, mostly ornamented with a beautiful colour-pattern. Some species, e.g. the type species B. spirata, have a conspicuous sutural canal (see pl. 8 figs. 1-3), resembling the spirally arranged staircase of the Babylonian Tower in certain old pictures (pl. 6 fig. 1). Some of the species are found in many collections, others are rarely seen. A l l Recent members of the genus are restricted to the Indo-Pacific region. The fossil Babylonia species are found in a more extensive area, including southern and central Europe. The Recent species have been treated in the well known iconographies of the nineteenth century. Much later a short revision was given by Habe (1965), followed by comments on some species by Altena (1968). It should be emphasized that we have concentrated on the Recent species in this monograph. Far less original research has been done on fossil taxa; many data have simply been taken from the literature here.

    Description: Four new species are here described in order to have their descriptions published before "Seashells of Wia Wia" by D. J. Green & R. H. Hill and the second part of my paper on the Holocene and Recent marine Mollusca of Suriname will appear. Notes are added on two species for which names are used different from those in previous publications. The description of Solen rosewateri n. sp. is nearly completely based on specimens obtained during the Research of the Continental Shelf of Suriname (Onderzoek Continentaal Plat Suriname: O.C.P.S.), which dredged off the Suriname coast in 1966 and 1969. As large parts of the O.C.P.S. material have not yet been sorted out, there is a possibility that specimens of the other new species described in the present paper will prove to occur in this material. Unless otherwise stated the specimens are in the Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie at Leiden. Petricola (Petricolaria) pholadiformis gracilis Deshayes nov. comb. (pl. 1 figs. 4-6, textfig. 1c, d) I found that the syntypes of Petricola gracilis Deshayes in the British Museum (Natural History) agree with specimens from St. Petersburg, Florida; Galveston, Texas; the beach near the mouth of Matapica Canal, Suriname, and Holocene shell ridges near Cupido on the Maratakka, Suriname. The subspecies was mentioned as Petricola (Petricolaria) aff. parallela Pilsbry & Lowe in my publication of 1968 (p. 158). Lamarck (1818: 505) described Petricola pholadiformis after one specimen from unknown locality, which belonged to the cabinet of Mrs. Bandeville. This cabinet was bought by the Prince of Masséna after having passed through other hands (Lamy 1931?: 22) and finally came to the Muséum

Het bovenste plistoceen („laagterras", II8 van de geologische kaart van Nederland) is te Velzen in een tweetal putten, gegraven voor den bouw van een tunnel onder het Noordzeekanaal, een tijdlang ontsloten geweest. Deze ontsluiting is door velen, die belang stellen in den geologischen bouw van Nederland, bezocht en ook de schrijvers dezer regelen prijzen zichzelf gelukkig het belangwekkende profiel te hebben aanschouwd en in de gelegenheid te zijn geweest ter plaatse mollusken te verzamelen. Hun buit en het materiaal, dat zij van andere zijde ter bewerking mochten ontvangen, bevat verscheidene vormen, die een publicatie over dit materiaal rechtvaardigen. Ook resten nog enkele problematica; hiervan is meer materiaal noodig om definitieve determinaties mogelijk te maken. Daarom hopen wij dat dit artikel een aansporing zal zijn tot verder onderzoek, wanneer

    Description: "The student must know something of systematic work. This is populary supposed to be a dry-as-dust branch of zoology. In fact, the systematist may be called the dustman of biology, for he performs a laborious and frequently thankless task for his fellows, and yet it is one which is essential for their well-being and progress".

INTRODUCTION, SYSTEMATIC SURVEY AND PAGE REFERENCES In the first part of this work, published in 1969, I gave a general introduction to the Suriname marine Mollusca ; in this second part the Bivalvia and Scaphopoda are treated. The system (and frequently also the nomenclature) of the Bivalvia are those employed in the "Treatise on Invertebrate Paleontology, (N) Mollusca 6, Part I, Bivalvia, Volume 1 and 2". These volumes were issued in 1969 and contain the most modern system of the Bivalvia. For the Scaphopoda the system of Thiele (1935) is used.

Geijskes, then Director of the Suriname Museum, Paramaribo, visited me and asked for my help. During the years (since 1938) Dr. Geijskes had stayed in Suriname, he had collected marine Mollusca in a great number of localities, in the Holocene so called shellridges, as well as on the coast and in the estuaries. He was sure that his collection contained a great number of species, and that their distribution over

    Description: CONTENTS Introduction............... 3 Systematic survey of the Limacidae of the central and western Canary Islands 5 Biogeographical notes on the Limacidae of the Canary Islands . . . . 21 Alphabetical list of the persons who collected or observed Limacidae in the Canary Islands.............. 31 Literature............... 32 INTRODUCTION In the spring of 1947 I was so fortunate as to join for some 9 weeks the Danish Zoological Expedition to the Canary Islands. During my stay I collected materials for the Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie at Leiden, paying special attention to the land- and freshwater Mollusca. This paper contains the first results of the examination of the Mollusca collected. My Danish friends Dr. Gunnar Thorson and Dr. Helge Volsøe generously put at my disposal the non-marine Mollusca they collected during their stay in the Canaries. When the material has been worked up, duplicates will be deposited in the Zoological Museum at Copenhagen. I am indebted to several persons who helped me in various ways in the investigations here published. Prof. Dr. N. Hj. Odhner (Stockholm) very kindly put at my disposal a MS list of all the Mollusca of the Canary Islands and their distribution, which he had compiled for private use. Mr. Hugh Watson (Cambridge) never failed to help me by examining or lending specimens, and in detailed letters gave me the benefit of his great experience. During my stay in Paris in March 1950 Dr. G. Ranson and Dr. A. Franc put at my disposal for examination the Canarian slugs present in the Muséum
