ADVERTISEMENT.

The scientific publications of the National Museum consist of two series—Proceedings and Bulletins.

The Proceedings, the first volume of which was issued in 1878, are intended primarily as a medium for the publication of original papers based on the collections of the National Museum, setting forth newly acquired facts in biology, anthropology, and geology derived there- from, or containing descriptions of new forms and revisions of limited groups. A volume is issued annually or oftener for distribution to libraries and scientific establishments, and, in view of the importance of the more prompt dissemination of new facts, a limited edition of each paper is printed in pamphlet form in advance. The dates at which these separate papers are published are recorded in the table of contents of the volume.

The present volume is the forty-third of this series.

The Bulletin, publication of which was begun in 1875, is a series of more elaborate papers, issued separately, and, like the Proceedings, based chiefly on the collections of the National Museum.

A quarto form of the Bulletin, known as the ‘‘Special Bulletin,” has been adopted in a few instances in which a larger page was deemed indispensable.

Since 1902 the volumes of the series known as ‘‘Contributions from the National Herbarium,” and containing papers relating to the botan- ical collections of the Museum, have been published as Bulletins.

DESCRIPTIONS OF THE ALCYONARIA COLLECTED BY THE U. 8. FISHERIES STEAMER “ALBATROSS,” MAINLY IN JAPANESE WATERS, DURING 1906.

By Cuarzzs C. Nuttine, Professor of Zoology, State University of Iowa.

INTRODUCTION.

But an insignificant proportion of the aleyonarian material col- lected by the U. S. Fisheries steamer Albatross during her cruise in the Northwest Pacific during 1906 was secured outside of Japanese waters. Hence this paper is substantially a contribution to our knowledge of the Japanese Alcyonaria.

The surprising richness of the marine fauna in the vicinity of Japan has long been recognized, and the extent of the collection of Aleyona- ria secured by the Albatross was, in some degree at least, anticipated, although the number of new forms is somewhat greater than might have been expected, especially in view of the number of excellent papers that have appeared in recent years treating of the Alcyonaria of those regions.

A number of more or less extensive collections have made their way to European museums and have been reported on by various writers. Perhaps the most important of these collections was that made during 1904-5 by Dr. F. Doflein and reported on by Prof. W. Kikenthal, who has discussed the Aleyonacea and Gorgonacea! in three masterly monographs, giving excellent discussions of these groups in general, as well as of the species collected by Doctor Doflein. The Pennatulacea are being reported on by Dr. H. Balss, who has given some preliminary descriptions in the Zoologischer Anzeiger for 1909.

A notable work, Primnoide von Japan, by K. Kinoshita, appeared in the Journal of the College of Science of the Imperial University of Tokyo, 1908. The descriptions and figures in this work are excellent, and proved an unusually efficient aid in identification of species in the progress of the present work.

Wright and Studer, in their report on the Alcyonaria of the Chal- lenger expedition, described a number of species from Japanese waters, and others have since been reported from that region.

In view of these comprehensive monographs and other less pre- tentious papers, it would seem that the aleyonarian fauna of the Japanese region had been pretty thoroughly worked, and that further investigations of the same region would not be very profitable, at least so far as the discovery of new forms is concerned. On the contrary, however, the collection secured by the Albatross is of ex- ceptional interest, adding many species, most of which are new, to the already extensive list from that region, as well as furnishing numerous items of interest concerning the geographical distribution of the group.

As a whole the Japanese Alcyonaria are more circumscribed in their distribution than one would consider likely, there being com- paratively few species found both in Japanese waters and other parts of the Western Pacific, as is well shown in comparing the lists of species in the present work with those found in the monographic reports on the alcyonarians of the Gulf of Manaar by Thomson and Henderson,’ and the two bulky works which constitute the reports on the Aleyonaria secured by the /nvestigator in the Indian Ocean.’ Such a comparison shows that the faunz of the Indian Ocean and of Japan are by no means intimately related, reminding one of the same condition of affairs found in the Caribbean Sea as compared with the adjacent waters of the North Atlantic.

The above list shows that the collection contains 102 species of Aleyonaria distributed among 54 genera belonging to 18 families. There are 40 new species and 2 new genera. The Muriceide includes the largest number of genera (11) and 17 species. The family con- taining the greatest number of species is the Primnoide, with 18 species and 1 new genus.

The genus represented by the largest number of species is Pen- natula, with 9 species, 4 of which are new, and this genus probably has the greatest geographical range.

The 40 new species, constituting just about 39 per cent of the whole number, are pretty well distributed over the various families and genera of the order, although there is a proportionally greater number in the family Muriceide than in any other, 11 of the 17 species of this family being new. Of the 18 species of the Primnoidz but 5 are new.

It appears that alcyonarians were secured from 75 stations during the cruise. The greatest yield was from station 4936, at a depth of 103 fathoms, where 16 species were secured; the next best haul being from station 4894, with a yield of 11 species. This last was almost equaled at station 4935, where 10 species were dredged. Other good hauls were from station 4893, where 8 species were secured; and station 5070, yielding 8 species. All of these extraordinarily suc- cessful hauls were from depths ranging from 95 to 108 fathoms, and all were in Japanese waters.

The deepest haul was near Bering Island, where Helicoptilum rigidum, a species for which a new genus of pennatulids is described, was secured from a depth of 2,700 fathoms. At station 4766, near Koniuji Island, one of the Aleutian Group, in a depth of 1,766 fathoms Pennatula aculcata and Bathygorgia profunda were secured. At sta- tion 4765, Anthoptilum murray? was dredged from 1,217 fathoms, and at station 4780, Plumarella spicata and Leptogorgia beringi from a depth of 1,046 fathoms. These were the four deepest hauls at which Alcyonaria were obtained. Of the 6 species from these depths, 3 are pennatulids, and 3 belong to the Gorgonacea, while all belong to families of wide distribution in the deep seas.
