broad; attenuated at "the ends; space included between the inner
margins narrow; slightly expanded at the ends; striae fine, linear;
slightly radiate. (PI. 29, fig. 12.) This form varies greatly in
size and shape, as well as in the habitat. It seems essentially a
fresh water form, for I have found it frequently in localities far
remote from marine influences; and also in places where, so far as
I could judge, there was no likelihood of mixture of fresh water
with the salt. Under the circumstances, I was anxious to submit the
forms to the most rigid examination, but could detect no specific

mostly marine. Lough Corrib, Co. Galway, wholly free from marine

typical form, only that the produced ends are capitate; the striae,
also, which are similarly arranged, may easily be resolved...
