Abstract

The Trustees of the Australian Museum have, besides many other valuable birds forwarded through the Curator, Dr. Ramsay, to the Cambridge Museum of Zoology, sent two well preserved spirit specimens Pedionomus torquatus, and Dr. Ramsay has more than once expressed the wish that I should determine the affinities of this peculiar bird. Although I have much pleasure in making the following communication, I do so with some reluctance, because of the incomplete state of my investigations. Two intact specimens of Pedionomus would be of course sufficient for an extensive and amply illustrated monograph
