As pointed out in our last paper. (1925,.P· 75), the Eared
Seals of the Australian coasts have been revised recently, by
Professor F. Wood-Jones, D.Sc., F.R.S. (1925, p. 9), who lists three species under the genus Arctocephalus, namely,:-
1. Arctocephalus cinereus, Peron.
2. Arctocephalus doriferus, Wood-Jones.
3. Arctocephalus forsteri, Lesson.
When listing the Tasmanian vertebrates a year or so
ago (Lord and. Scott, 1924, p. 307) we referred to the Fur Seal of Bass Straits as Euotaria cinerea, but whilst referring
to and accepting McCoy's data, we drew attention to the need
for further research. As a result of Professor Wood-Jones's visit to Tasmania
he was able to see certain of our collections, and also we are
indebted to him for an exchange of specimens.
