Abstract

This paper is concerned with the intraspecific variation of the metrical features of the skull and teeth in the long-nosed bandicoot species Perameles gunnii and Perameles bougainville. Part 1 of the study (Freedman, 1967) listed the numbers of specimens and the source and localities of the material used and reviewed the taxonomy of the genus. A description of the anatomy of the skull and teeth of P. nasuta was also given and some of the anatomical differences found in P. gunnii and P. bougainville were discussed. Part 2 (Freedman and Joffe, 1967) described the system of measurements and ageing and sexing criteria used in the study and analysed the sex and locality variations in the metrical features of the skull and teeth of Perameles nasuta.
