Abstract

The discovery at Smithton, during the present year,
of a nearly complete skeleton of Nototherium mitchelli
forms the occasion for a revision of many of our ideas
respecting these remarkable marsupial animals, since the fragmentary
remains hitherto available for study have
failed to yield the sequence of evidence we now possess. This is a note only – intended
to place upon record the
fact Nototherium mitchelli was an extinct marsupial
rhinoceros, and that the four genera, Nototherium, Zygomaturus,
Enowenia, and Sthenomerus, with their -
species, are accordingly under revision.
