Abstract

On the 19th August, 1889, we had the pleasure of bringing
under the notice of the members of this Society a new Ganoid
Fish, from the Knocklofty sandstones, and named Acrolepis
Hamiltoni, in honour of our worthy President, Sir Robert
Hamilton. We have now the honour of giving a full
description of a second species of the sa1ne genus recently
discovered in a sandstone formation near Tinder-Box Bay,
deemed to be nearly of the same geological horizon as the
sandstones of Knocklofty.
Includes description of species.
