An additional unbarbed spear head accompanies the spear E078215. This spear head consists of a single shaft of hard wood that tapers to a point. The remnants of black resin can be seen on the body of the spear head. The spear was collected by Alexander Morrison in the late 19th or early 20th Century. It was acquired by the Australian Museum in 1982.
