VOLUTA CATHCARTIAL Vol. testa cylindraceo-oblonga, basi recurva, spira brevi, apice papillari, anfractibus superne concavo-declivibus, deinde subplanatis ; columella quadriplicata, plicis basin versus descendente ; apertura elongata, subangusta, labio simplici, curvato ; aurantio-@ha, nigricante-purpureo trij'asciatim interrupte maculata, maculis valde irregularibus et varie nebulatis, anfractuum sutura peculiariter punctata et maculata. Long. 3+ poll. ; lat. 1 : poll. Rab. -1 This fine species of Voluta, from the collection of the Hon. Mrs. Macadam Cathcart, will not admit of defined comparison with any known species. It has somewhat the tone of colour and marking of V . Pacijfca, but is o f quite another typical form. The spire is short and largely papillary, and the plaits of the columella, four in number, descend elongately to the base. 2. VOLUTA AMERICANA. Vol. testa subabbrezv'ato-fieiformi, spira exserta, turrita, apice vix papillari, anfiactibus superne eoncavo-angulatis, ad angulum tuberculk rotundatis, interdum in plicis descendentibus eleganter coronatis ; columella superne arcuata, deinde callosa et quadr+licata, plica superna fere ohsoleta, apertura subefusa ; pallida, fulvescente, aurantiofusco trifasciatim interrupte maculata, etjuxta suturam picta, interstitiis eximie reticulata. Long. 1f poll. ; lat. + poll. Hub. Brazil. Of very characteristic form, faintly banded and reticulated with orange-brown; also in the collection of the Hon. Mrs. Macadam Cathcart. Vol. testa ovata, subventricosa, spira exserta, apice subpapillari, anfractibus superne concavo-angulatis, ad angulum tuberculato-nodatis, nodis interdum in, costis descendentibus, columella arcuata, basin versu~ b@licatu, apertura subefusa ; fulvo-aurantia, lineis Jicscis, punctis hieroglyphicis sparsim internotatis, in quaternis, fasciata, columella superne intense nigra. Long. 23 poll. ; lat. l+.poll. Hab. East coast of Africa. This species, from Mr. Cuming's collection, partakes of the cha-3. VOLUTA AFRICANA. racters of P. festiva and P. Hebrea, but is of a totally distinct typical form, especially in respect of the columella, which is peculiarly arched, and has only two plaits at the base. The columella is stained at the top with the characteristic black spot of P. festiva.
