Quarto, [68] pages with a full-page map after Tindale (in a total of [ii], 175-330 pages with numerous illustrations plus plates).

An exhaustive survey based in part on material collected on expeditions 'to Pandi on the lower Diamantina, adjacent to the Queensland border, in 1934, and the northern Flinders Ranges in 1937', combined with 'much published information ... widely scattered in literature. The present paper is an attempt to bring it together under a zoological classification'. It is effectively an annotated thematic bibliography of the area (the north-eastern corner of South Australia and environs). This issue also contains COOPER, H.M.: An Exceptional Australian Axe-head (2 pages with 3 illustrations plus a full-page plate). Other contributors include Sir Douglas Mawson, H.H. Finlayson, Constance Eardley, and Bernard Cotton. (A 25-page companion article by T.H. JOHNSTON and J.B. CLELAND on the flora of basically the same area was published in Part 1 of this volume. Fine copies are available for $55 each. SPECIAL: the two parts are offered together for $165).
