SUMMARY ........... 248 5. REFERENCES ........... 248 6. ADDENDUM ........... 260 i. INTRODUCTION HINCKS' great work " A History of the British Marine Polyzoa " was published in 1880. Some measure of its status can be gauged from a comparison of both text and plates with those of Johnston's " British Zoophytes " (1847). Benefiting from the works of Gray (1848), Busk (1852, 1854, 1859, 1875) and Smitt (1865-72), as well as from shorter contributions by himself and other naturalists, Hincks produced a monograph in which the species were taxonomically well ordered, accurately and unmistakably described, and illustrated with clarity and fidelity. The result was a book which had a much greater significance than just that of a descriptive catalogue for identifying British marine Polyzoa. Hincks maintained some large, unwieldy and now clearly unnatural genera (e.g. Membmnipora s. lat., Lepralia, Cellepora). Later taxonomists, such as Norman (1903), Levinsen (1909) and Canu & Bassler (in a wide range of publications) have split these large assemblages into smaller, more homogeneous units. The importance of Hincks' book lies in the fact that so many of today's genera and their types have been based on his descriptions and plates. In addition to being a source-book to workers on Polyzoa all over the world, it remains the most comprehensive text for biologists wishing to identify marine Polyzoa in western Europe. (A key to the genera was subsequently provided by ZOOL. 17, 6. 14
