Abstract

In 1889 I described the first, and so far the only remains of this remarkable genus discovered in N. S. Wales, from the Canadian Lead, Gulgong, The fossils consisted of a small horn-core, greater part of a caudal vertebra, and two annular segments of the tailsheath. Irrespective of the interest attached to the extended geographical distribution, lies the fact of the much more important geological range, perhaps even indicating a distinct species of the animal.

Evidence is now to hand, in the form of two horn-cores, of the existence of Meiolania in the superficial deposits near Coolah. The specimens form part of a small collection, consisting of bones of Diprotodon, Phascolonus, Procoptodon, &c., lately presented by Mr. J. McMaster, of Coolah.
