Zittel's “Palæontologie” (March 5, p. 420) I have omitted to mention that, although other writers have placed the Dolichosauria next to the Pythonomorpha, it is only in a paper recently read by Mr. G. A. Boulenger before the Zoological Society, but not yet published, that the one group was considered to be the ancestor of the other.
