Abstract

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.
