Abstract

A paper by Tokubei Kuroda from 1953 is presented for the first time in English, with an introduction and annotation. It describes the main collecting expeditions commissioned by Yoichiro Hirase between 1900 and 1909. The localities and collection dates for the type material of the following species are given in more detail than in the original descriptions: Euhadra awaensis (Pilsbry, 1902); Trishoplita optima (Pilsbry, 1902); Mundiphaedusa kurozuensis (Pilsbry, 1902); Mundiphaedusa pachyspira (Pilsbry, 1902); Aegista (Coelorus) cavitectum (Pilsbry and Hirase, 1903); Karafthelix chishimana (Pilsbry and Hirase, 1904) [= K. blakeana (Newcomb, 1865)]; Mundiphaedusa hosoyaka (Pilsbry 1905); Luchuphaedusa azumai (Pilsbry, 1905); Luchuphaedusa ophidoon (Pilsbry, 1905).
