Abstract

In a former communication to the Linnean Society of
N.S.W. I described the genital apparatus in a female
specimen of Sarcophilus satanicus which had borne young,
and in that paper drew attention to various phenomena,
especially in connection with the median vaginal apparatus,
which could only be satisfactorily explained by the examination
of similar organs in the virgin animal. In the
ordinary course of events, such an undoubted virgin would
be difficult to procure, and, even if obtained, would be
hard to recognise as such in our present knowledge of these
organs in this genus. Nevertheless, since my last paper
was written, through the kindness of Mrs. Roberts,
C.M.Z.S., of Hobart, such a virgin has been placed at my
disposal.
I am able to confirm and considerably augment my
account of the genital organs in this genus.
I have nothing to add to my previous account of the
external form of the female organs, except that in this
specimen the Fallopian tubes seem slightly more convoluted
than in the former specimen.
