Abstract

The feet of the Nototheria have hitherto remained
undescribed from associated specimens. alhough many
bones in museum collections have been relegated to the
genus. The calcaneum, and astragalus, of Nototherium
tasmanicum were recovered with the rest of the skeleton
in 1910, and the astragalus of Nototherium victoria, came
to light with other associated remains from King Island in
1912.
