    The molluscan fauna of the Wexford Gravels (Pleistocene) is listed from eight localities and the conclusion drawn that the southern and "Pliocene" (Crag) aspect has been overstressed. No obvious variation was noted in the molluscan fauna of the different localities. A. Bell's earlier work (1873-1919) is summarised and some of his records revised. The identity of the Wexford sinistral Neptunea is considered and the species named N. informis Harmer. A possible source of the Crag shells is suggested. Other British Pleistocene deposits containing derived "Crag" shells are mentioned.
