Who discovered the Teeth in Ornithorhynchus?


ON returning from Central Arizona, where I have been engaged in biological explorations, I find upon my desk an important paper entitled “On the Dentition of Ornithorhynchus,” by my friend Mr. Oldfield Thomas, Curator of Mammals in the British Museum (see Proc. Royal Soc., vol. xlvi, 1889, 126–131, p1. 2).
