Abstract: It is well known that there are several submarine
banks along the submerged rise which
extends southwestward from the southern tip
of Izu Peninsula, central Honshu. Small islands
such as Toshima, Niijima, Shikine, and Kozu,
with several other islets, lie on this rise. These,
together with a few other islands situated farther
south; are called the Izu Islands. They are
linked by a volcanic system, and there is a considerable
number of such banks in the neighborhood.
A few papers concerned with hydrographical,
bathymetrical, and faunistic characteristics
of these submarine banks have been prepared by
Suzuki and Sato (1944) , Niino (1935, 1952,
1955), and Shirai (1958). On the basis of these
works, together with information furnished by
the present author, Horikoshi (1957) discussed
the topographical peculiarity in relation to the
general molluscan fauna on these banks.
