Description of the mutilated cranium of a large fish, from the Lower Cretaceous of Queensland
A comparatively recent visit to Queensland yielded to Mr. P. G. Black's researches in the Lower Cretaceous beds at Marathon, Flinders River, the mutilated skull of a fish. A reproduction of this fossil has been made for the Museum collection, with Mr. Black's permission, the original returning to his cabinet. The skull is crushed from above downward, and consequently expanded to some extent laterally, and also pressed backwards. Above, the bones are firmly encased in the close-grained argillaceous limestone forming the matrix, but below are weathered to a great extent free of the latter.
