Plate 36, Figures 5-6. Lepralia pertusa found on piles, old hulks, stones, and shells, Hobson's Bay

I am indeed indebted for the descriptions and the authentic specimens her figured of our native species of Lepralia to my friend, Mr. P.H. MacGillivray. All the types have been placed in the National Museum.
