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.
