Description

Excerpt from Second Catalogue of Mollusca, Recently Added to the Fauna of the New England Coast and the Adjacent Parts of the Atlantic, Consisting Mostly of Deep Sea Species: With Notes on Others Previously Recorded The original assorting and preservation of the deep-sea specimens taken by the Albatross was largely done by Mr. Sanderson Smith, who went on all the cruises of the Albatross, except a few of the earliest. He was assisted by several other members of the party, and especially by Ensign W. E. Safford, U. S. N. My work has also been particularly facilitated by the care and skill with which the final assorting, cataloguing, and labeling of the large collections have been done by my assistant, Miss K. J. Bush, who has, also, made many identifications of the described species, and given aid in other ways. When the various lots were first examined and assorted, at Wood's Holl, last summer, during the dredging season, many of the new species, especially the largest and most striking, were recognized as forms not before Observed on our coast, both by Mr. Sanderson Smith, who had special charge of the shells, and myself. For such species, in this article, Verrill and Smith are usually given as authorities but the writer is alone responsible for the descriptions of all the species, as in his previous papers on the same subject. Some of the previously known species, first discovered on our coast last summer, were first identified by Mr. Smith, and others by Miss Bush, but the writer has independently examined and confirmed all such species, given in this paper.
