Abstract

When examining the Tree Kangaroos in the Museum Collections for the purposes of my paper on .Dendrolagus bennettianus, de Vis, I was somewhat puzzled by a mounted specimen. As however it did not throw light upon the species under investigation, it was placed aside for future study.

Having once more taken it in hand, I found that it agreed with D. Dorianus in all described particulars except the non-reversal of the hair. A search among the duplicate collections revealed two other skins, received along with the specimen mentioned; these presented :the aspect of the hair peculiar to D. dorianus. Another look at the mounted specimen showed that the hair had been brushed in the orthodox manner, namely from head to tail.
