Abstract

Mr. C. A. Sössmilch, Iecturer on Geology, Technical College, Sydney, favoured me with the loan of a cranial buckler of a Dipnoan fish, obtained by him from the Devonian beds of the Murrumbidgee River. A reproduction of this specimen has been placed in the Museum collection. The buckler in question so closely resembles one described by Dr. R. H. Traquair, some years ago, as Ganorhynchus woodwardi, that I am induced to publish a description of the new specimen under the same generic name, as G. Sussmilchi.
