Antedon Rosaceus (Comatula Rosacea)


THE letters of your correspondents with reference to the above, seem to me to fail to prove that there is any public recorded instance of its capture in the stalked (brachial) form at Torquay before the instance noted by the Birmingham Natural History and Microscopical Society in 1873. Of course if Prof. Aliman took a specimen in the pre-brachial stage there in 1863, and Mr. Gosse the adult animal in 1864, the stalked form (brachial) must have been there as well, but was probably overlooked.
