Among the specimens recovered by Mr. K. M. Harrisson
from the swamp lands of King Island, we have to record
specimens relating to Nototherium victoriae, which include
the following items.
1. The right and left rami of the mandible of a young
animal, minus the premolars in either case, but having upon
the right side, in addition to molars 4, 3, and 2, the tusk
relating to that half of the jaw. Upon the left side, there
are present molars 4, 3, 2, 1.
2. The associated right and left upper maxillaries, from
a skull of an older animal than that which supplied the
mandible, the bony tissue being fully ossified and the teeth
worn down to smooth surfaces.
