Excerpt from The Quarterly Journal of Conchology, Vol. 1: May, 1877 The descriptive part follows, every species being described - both animal and shell - followed by information as to its station, and its distribution both within and outside of Germany. The synonymy is purposely shortened as much as possible, only the citation of the original description, references to some figures, and to any published accounts of the anatomy, with one or two other quotations, being given. Each species is illustrated by a. Woodcut, giving a view of the shell from above, fiom below, and sideways.
