Dr. f. A. JENTINK. MAMMALS.
COLLECTED BY THE DUTCH NEW GUINEA EXPEDITION 1907. BY
Dr. F. A. JENTINK.
October 1908. With plate L
The Committee for the publication of the results of this expedition to Dutch South New Guinea kindly asked me to work out the Mammals. Although the collection is a small one it however contains besides some new forms several very rare specimens only known from the types, so that Dr. H. A. LORENTZ, the able leader of the expedition, may be congratulated with these results.
The collection embraces 16 species, of which 4 are new to science. Since the publication of my paper "on the Mammals collected by the members of the Humboldt Bay and the Merauke expeditions, Nov. 1907" % Oldfield Thomas (Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist. 1908, p. 122) described a new form of Dactylopsila, D. melampus, from South-Eastern British New Guinea, Mambare River, Kokoda and Tamata; so that with my hereafter to describe 4 new species and a Nyctinomus jobensis, described by MlLLER from Japen [Jobi] Island (Proc. Biol. Soc. of Washington, 1902, p. 247), there now are known 139 Mammals from New Guinea.
