Abstract

Macropus titan Owen, in Mitchell's Three Expeditions into the Interior of Eastern Australia, 2nd Edit., ii, 1838, p. 360. Macropus titan Lydekker, Brit. :Mus. Cat. Foss. Mamms., Part v, 1887, p. 225. Macropus magister De Vis, Proc. Linn. Soc. N. S. Wales, x, 1894, p. 120.

On a recent visit to the Wellington Caves, New South Wales, a well known depository of fossil marsupials, Mr. G. C. Clutton of the Museum Staff and myself obtained the greater part of a macropod skull, which was firmly embedded in the red cave earth at a depth of about seventy feet. On examination this was found to conform closely to Owen's description of Macropus titan, a species first recorded from the same locality.
