Description of Lampris Luna. This very interesting specimen, the first on record of having been captured in Australia, was forwarded to the Museum by Mr. Alfred Lovett on December 18th, 1895. Mr. Lovett states that it was found washed up on the beach near Port Arthur, and weighed 130lbs. Unfortunately the crows had picked and destroyed one side.
