Excerpt from Nature, Vol. 9: A Weekly Illustrated Journal of Science; November, 1873 to April, 1874 Unfortunately the specimen did not arrive in a good state for exhibition. The greater part of the animal por tion had been washed off, probably by the motion of the solution during the transit only about a foot of the flesh, which was loose on the axis, and the thick, swollen, naked, club-shaped base without polypes remained; but it was in a sufficiently good state to afford the means of determining its zoological situation and of examining its microscopical and other zoological characters.
