The late John K. Strecker of the Baylor University Museum catalogued the Naiades of Texas in 1931. Since then, but little has been added to our knowledge of these mollusks in Texas. We need now, especially, studies on the general ecology of Texan species, with a modern revision of names, careful comparison of the synonymy, and close identification of Texas specimens in the museums. Last summer (1951) we made an ecological study of Parson's Slough in the southeastern part of Dallas County. In our work we gathered much information on the bivalve mollusks. Other data later gathered from this locality and other parts of the county, have been incorporated in this report.
