Abstract

There has been at various times some little discussion
on the state of the median vaginal septum in various
members of the genus Trichosurus; up to the present however,
the only member of the group which seems to have
been examined is the common phalanger Trichosurus vulpecula.
Brass (1) in 1880 described the organs of this
animal, and in his specimen found the two median cul-de sacs
separated from one another by a complete partition.
In 1899 Forbes (2), in a foot note on a communication on
the anatomy of the Koala, speaks of the median vaginal
apparatus as a "common vaginal chamber formed by the
coalescence and fusion of the two diverticula present in
Phascolomys and Phascolarctos."
Includes plates.
