  • Description or summary of the book: Excerpt from A Catalogue of Recent Cephalopoda: Supplement, 1887-96 The new forms are in nearly all cases adequately described, and in the majority of instances figured with sufficient detail, so that there has been comparatively little room for doubt as to their claim to specific distinction. In cases of uncertainty I have adhered to the principle, mentioned in my previous list, of not registering species as identical without very strong evidence. In the case of a Catalogue like the present, which makes no pretensions to monographic completeness, less harm is done by letting two names stand side by side than by hastily entering them as synonymous. Most of the novelties are from the eastern seas, and are due to the investigations of Dr Ortmann into the Japanese forms, of the late Dr Brock, whose untimely death deprived zoological science of a promising worker in this interest ing field, and of Mr Goodrich, who has reported upon the collections in the Calcutta Museum. It is, however, no injustice to these workers to say that the _most important systematic work on the Cephalopoda which has appeared in recent years is the Monograph which Dr J atta has published in the Fauna and Flora of the Gulf of Naples. It is the result of more than ten years work, and is based upon abundant material prepared with all the resources which have rendered the Naples station famous all over the world. The descriptions are careful and elaborate, and there is a wealth of illustrations, which should render it impossible in future to mistake any of the species there enumerated.
