AbstractFrom Introduction: "The winter quarters of the" Aurora" were in Commonwealth Bay, Adelie Land to the south of Australia; and it was here that most of the collecting was carried out. A small party had beon left on Maquarie Island in connection with the Meteorological and Wireless Station, and during the two years spent here a number of Polychaetes and Oligochaetes were gathered around the shore. A few worms were also obtained by trawling off Maria Island, Tasmania, under the supervision of Professor T. T. Flynn, of the University of Tasmania, who had accompanied the" Aurora" on one of her trips to the Macquaries.
