Description

Sectional 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Not recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions.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.

[Published in the Philosophical Transactions B, 1905].
