Referee's report by William Henry Flower, on a paper 'On parts of the skeleton of Meiolania platyceps (Ow.)' by Richard Owen

Reference number: RR/10/61

Date: 07 June 1887

Description

Recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society', so long as this does not commit the Royal Society to agreement with the author's conclusions regarding the affinity of the animals, which would not be accepted by any zoologist. Refers to work of Thomas Henry Huxley. The drawings should be made by the atist directly from the specimens, not from the sketches provided.

Subject: Zoology, Palaeontology
