[Footnote] * There are two species named Aglaophenia huttoni: A. huttoni, Coughtrey (see above), and A. huttoni, Kirchenpauer = Plumularia pennatula, Hutton, 1872, Trans. N.Z. Inst., v., 258; Coughtrey, 1874, ib., vii., 289; A. pennatula (?), Coughtrey, 1876, Ann. and Mag. Nat. Hist. (4), xvii., 31. They are both given by Mr. Bale in a list of species which were over-looked by Von Lendenfeld, Proc. Roy. Soc. Vict., xxiii., 103. Unfortunately I have not seen Kirchenpauer's paper, and I cannot say which name has priority and which must be changed.
