Exhibits.—The Curator exhibited a living specimen of lamprey (Geotria australis) which, as far as Mr. Kingsley was able to ascertain, was the first recorded specimen captured in New Zealand, and read a short account of the same.

There is a description of it, and a drawing, in vol. v. of the “Transactions,” p. 272, and it is there stated as being found in Australia and Stewart Island.
