Not illustrated. 1896 edition. Excerpt: ...of unmistakable (Leda) Nuculana and Nucula are given. He goes on to say, " Two species of the Muscle are found in Kilbride, figs. 5 and 6, pl. xvi. Specimens of the former are in casts, and are very rare. The latter are in till or ironstone " mostly in single valves." John Gray, in his life of Rev. D.
