Abstract

IN my paper on the skull of this type (see abstract Proc. Roy Soc., January 10, 1878, pp. 13-16) I spoke of the snake as “lying at the very base of the gill-less vertebrata, and possessing a skull at once the simplest and yet the most curiously specialised,” of any of the many kinds I have worked out.
