TitleReferee's report by Richard Lydekker, on two papers 'On the ossiferous cave-deposits of Cyprus' and 'Further note on the remains of Elephas cypriotes from a cave-deposit in Cyprus' by Dorothea Minola Alice Bate
Date23 May 1904
DescriptionSectional Committee: Geology

Not recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions. When small elephants were discovered in Malta, it was practically a foregone conclusion they would occur in the other Mediterranean islands. The discovery of the Cyprian form, which in Lydekker's opinion is only a local case of the other, is undoubtedly interesting, but does not mark a real advance in science and the description of the remains in the Society's Proceedings would be amply sufficient.
