When treating the skull of Nototherium mitchelli to extract
the iron, and so render it fit for future preservation, we
carefully set aside the whole of the mud that came from the
nasal cavity, intending later on to search for fragments of
the turbinoid bones. After considerable expenditure of time
upon the unpromising mass, we are now able to report the
recovery of about one half of one of the maxillo turbinals,
and herewith record the following facts. In structure the
texture is about twice the degree of coarseness that obtains
in the living Kangaroos, but its general structure is akin to
the turbinal of a Wombat, and departs considerably in outline
from both that of the Kangaroo and the Native Bear.

In 1843 the Horticultural and Botanical Society of Van Diemen's Land was founded and became the Royal Society of Van Diemen's Land for Horticulture, Botany, and the Advancement of Science in 1844. In 1855 its name changed to Royal Society of Tasmania for Horticulture, Botany, and the Advancement of Science. In 1911 the name was shortened to Royal Society of Tasmania.
