Delphinula Laciniata, Lamarck.

Pilsbry, op. cit., p. 266, pl. lxvii,, figs. 1, 2, 4.

I collected a single worn shell on the sandbank in the centre of the Funafuti lagoon.

It is recorded by Kiener* from New Ireland, by Melvill and Standen from the Loyalty, and there is a specimen in this Museum collected by Pére Montrouzier at Woodlark Island, British New Guinea.
