Abstract

We desire to place on record a few notes relating to the discovery of certain Cetacean remains from the assumed Miocene beds at the Wynyard Cliffs, North-West Tasmania. Our latest additions consist of parts of the embedded centra and processes of some twenty vertebras, which in superficial osteology agree fairly closely with those of the modern Globicephalus whales, and depart, as equally, from such Squalodont remains as we have handled from this locality.
