from Kier & Lawson (1978)
Through the kindness of Dr. C. Anderson, Director of the Australian Museum, a collection of Echinodermata of more than ordinary interest was sent to me for identification in April, 1925. They were largely collected by Surgeon Lieutenant-Commander W. E. .J. Paradice, R.A.N. (late H.M.A.S." Geranium "), and chiefly on little known portions of the Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, between 17° and 19° S. lat. A few other localities are, however, represented. As several of the species have not hitherto been taken on the coast of Australia, and the records for many others show important extensions of range it seems to me worth while to publish an annotated list of the species contained in the collection. I sincerely thank Dr. Anderson for the opportunity to examine this material and I would add that credit is due Dr. Paradice for the important contribution he has made to our knowledge of the Australian marine fauna. There are in the collection altogether 101 specimens, representing 42 species.
