The ”Correspondentieblad der Nederlandsche Malacologische Vereeniging” is a stencilled bulletin, of which three numbers a year, containing about 7 pages each, are forwarded to the members of the Netherlands Malacological Society. Besides communications of no malacological interest from the committee to the members, reports of the meetings and excursions of the Society, hints for collecting and storing mollusca, abstracts of important new literature and notices about new mollusc books, it contains small notes presented by the members and dealing with particulars of the Dutch molluscan fauna. It was suggested to us that these notes — written as they are in Dutch — are hardly accessible to foreign malacologists, though their contents — however little stones for the great building of malacological science they may be — may interest them. Therefore we resolved to publish, e.g. every year or every two years, abstracts of these notes in ”Basteria”. The present paper contains the abstracts of these notes as far as they have been published in the numbers 1 (Oct. 1934) —12 (June 1938) inclusive. After the name of the author cited a reference is given to the number (in italics), its date of publication and the page where the note was published in the We have ranged the notes systematically according to Thiele’s system. A uniform nomenclature being desirable we adopted the names of the list of Dutch mollusca used by our Society for the study of the molluscan fauna of our country (published:, 9/10, Dec. 1937, pp. 56—66).
