Abstract

Section 1. The history of the genus Nototherium.
In the middle of last century the first fossil
remains of the extinct gigantic marsupial fauna of Australia
were discovered. Although subsequent discoveries
gave rise to the opinion that their distribution must have
been a wide one, it was not until the year 1910 the first
remains of these animals were discovered in Tasmania.
Section 2. The osteology of the cervical vertebrae.
As we duly point out in our published introductory
note, the cervical vertebras of Nototherium mitchelli
are of special morphological interest, combining in fact
the maximum of strength with the minimum of bulk and
weight.
