When in Tasmania in January of this year I collected a few specimens of Crustacea in the neighbourhood of Hobart, and also obtained others from Messrs. A. Simson, of Launceston, and L. Rodway, of Hobart. Since my return to New Zealand several specimens have been forwarded to me by Mr. C. Chilton, who obtained them from Mr. R. M. Laing, and a number of others have been received from Mr. Morton.
As far as I am aware, no one in Tasmania has devoted special attention to the Crustacea, though a few species have been described in foreign publications from material gathered in the colony.
