Catalogue of Mammalia in the Collection of the Australian Museum

Catalogue of Mammalia in the Collection of the Australian Museum
The Australian Museum of Sydney is evidently rapidly increasing in extent and importance under the care of its energetic Curator. The publication of a catalogue of the contents of a collection is always a proof of its healthy state, and, as we have ample evidence to show, the surest road to furtner development. We can only congratulate Mr. Krefft for having chosen Dr. Gray's Catalogue of Mammalia as his guide, and for not having bur-dened this commencement of zoological literature in Australia with the useless repetition of descriptions of animals perfectly well known. It would appear that the total number of species in the Sydney Museum is 283. Most of the Australian species are accompanied with notes on their habits or geographical distribution. The Catalogue does not contain species which have not been described elsewhere.
