skull (fossil) good in collection 13
Remarks: type skull misslabeled as 1695 = 1424;skull - Compared VPRA-1424 and VPRA-1695 to the material as described by Carroll (1964). It does appear the skull of 1424 was mislabeled as 1695. Both skulls are in their proper places now, but 1424 is still labeled as 1695. - Cyrus G. 2019-07-16
