Occurrence of a Species of Halammohydra on the Isles of Scilly

  title={Occurrence of a Species of Halammohydra on the Isles of Scilly},
  author={L. A. Harvey and J. B. J. Wells},
DURING the period March 24–28, 1959, collections of the interstitial fauna on several shores of the Isles of Scilly were made. On the very sheltered muddy sand shores of the islands of Tresco and St. Martin's, a small number of specimens of the cœlenterate, Halammohydra Remane, were recorded, in the surface 5 cm. of sand. The samples were treated with formalin immediately after sampling and this rendered exact identification impossible.
