Palaeontological notes no. II. Meiolania platyceps Owen and Varanus (Megalania) priscus (Owen)
Limb bones of Meiolania platyceps Owen. Since a description of this extinct chelonian was published in these Records, additional specimens have been secured at Lord Howe Island by the efforts of my colleague, Mr. E. Le G. Troughton, and Messrs. Baxter, Hines, and Nicholls, residents of the island. These afford further evidence regarding its structure and mode of life, for, fortunately, some of the bones were found associated in such a manner that one is justified in regarding them as belonging to one and the same individual. Thus, for the first time it is possible to draw conclusions as to the relative proportions of the limb bones.
