Abstract

The present specimens relate to the same find as that noted in our communication to this Society upon 13th June, 1921, when we detailed the characters relating to the humerus of Zaglossus harrissoni. Nototherium mitchelli, Owen.—Female (?) animal. Our claim (1920, p. 24 and p. 107) that the plaster cast studied by Professor Owen, and practically elevated by him to the status of a type, was made from the skull of a female animal, is once more our theme, and the evidence is of some considerable interest. Of the animal to be studied, we have the nasal platform, some parts of the zygomatic arch, one tusk, the right upper maxillary with parts of four teeth in situ, and the fifth present, but detached.
