TitleReferee's report by Richard Lydekker, on a paper 'Reptilian remains from the Trias of Elgin' by George Albert Boulenger
DateJune 1903
DescriptionSectional Committee: Geology

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions. It contains descriptions of one new form and much new information with regard to the structure of two others. Discusses the following modifications; on page 22 Theodontia is adopted for Belodon which is inadmissable. Theodontia is a synonym of Dinosauria, sensu stricta. Phytosaurus also has priority to Belodon. The professions of Mr Barlow and Mr Green of the Natural History Museum should be given. The three lithograph photographs and the sketches for process block interleaved with the manuscript should be reproduced. The photos of the original slate however show practically nothing.

[Published in the Philosophical Transactions B, 1904].
