NOTES ON FISHES from WESTERN AUSTRALIA, No. 2. By Edgar R. Waite, F.L.S., Zoologist. (Plates xxvii. -xxxi., and Fig. 20). In continuation of the arrangement with Mr, B. H. Woodward, Curator of the Western Australian Museum, the Trustees have received a second collection of fishes from Western Australia. All the specimens are to be identified with described specie.s, but many of them have not been previously recorded from the west coast. Of others already known to inhabit the western waters, precise or additional localities are supplied. The following species, not previously illustrated, are now figured : — Apogon rilfpellii, Gunther. Hyjjojolectrodes armaius, Castelnau. Pseudolabriis ruber, Castelnau. Thalassoma aneitense, Gunther. Coris auriailaris, Cuvier and Valenciennes. Cichlops lineatus, Castelnau. Velasia stenostomus, Ogilby. Two lampreys of this species were taken in the Canning River (at the estuary of the Swan River) and olF Pinjarrah respectively. Under the name Geotria chilensis it has been recorded from Swan River, but I publish these indisputable occurrences, as doubt has been cast on the West Australian habitat, as below : — "I have placed a note of interrogation against the West Australian distribution usually accorded to this species on the strength of the British Museum Catalogue, in which it is recorded from 'Swan River'; though without doubt the West Australian river is the most widely known, the name itself is so little distinctive that I am inclined to believe that some stream, possibly in Tasmania, where it has now been proved beyond question to occur, is intended."— Ogilby.^ 1 Ogilby— Proc.
