Abstract

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.
