|Title||Manuscript, 'True teeth in the young Ornithorhynchus paradoxus [platypus]' by Edward Bagnall Poulton|
|Description||Poulton: 'For the purpose of continuing some recent work upon various epidermic structures in Ornithorhynchus, Dr. Parker very kindly placed his most valuable material at my disposal. Among other things was a series of consecutive vertical transverse sections through the head of a young individual, about 8·3 decimetres long, when in the curled-up attitude in which it had been received, and which was fixed by the spirit. In this specimen only the larger hairs had appeared above the surface of the skin.'|
