ON SOME NEGLECTED GENERA OF FISHES. By Theodoke Gill, Honorani Associate in Zoolo(jy. Dr. Charles W. Richmond recently purchased a serial in Iwclvo vol-umes entitled Magazin f iir das Neueste aus der Physik and Natur-geschichte, published in Gotha from 1781 to 1799, and kindly called my attention to it. In the sixth volume (3. Stuck, pp. 28-38) for 1790 is an outline of a division of fishes according-to their teeth (Versuch einer Eintheilung der Fische nach den Zahnen) by Heinr[ichJ Fr[ied-rich] Linck, in which several generic names are proposed which take precedence of some in general use, but happily do not otherwise seri-ously disturb the nomenclature. Linck is only known by the article in question, which is duh^ recorded in the Bibliotheca Zoologica of Cams and Engelmann (p. 971), and b}" a prize writing: De aiialysi uringe et origine calculi, referred to b}^ the editor of the Magazin. As the magazine is very rare, an outline of the classification seems to be desirable, although there is nothing of value in it and charac-ters are often erroneoush' given and misapplied.
