Excerpt: ... App. I. AGED FEMALE OF THE FAN TRIBE. 449 become bevelled off to an edge, after the fashion of the scalpriform incisors of Rodents. The cranium, though smaller, resembles in general form and proportions that of the male Fan. The usual sutures, however, remain. The lambdoid is narrow, and the crenation hardly grows to crenulation toward the lower and outer end of the suture, where a small "wormian" is wedged between the mastoid and super-occipital on the left side. The occipital condyles are less convex, more worn down, than in the male skulls, as if from the practice of carrying weight on the head. The lower curved ridge of the occiput is well defined, and the surface between it and the foramen magnum shows the usual characters of muscular attachment, but there is neither an upper curved ridge nor occipital spine, and the surface above the lower ridge is convex, and smooth like the rest of the outer part of the super-occipital. The mastoid processes are small; the supra-mastoid ridges low and smooth; the superauditory ridges very short. The parietal protuberances are as little defined as in No. 24. The sagittal suture is "crenate;" the coronal suture is linear at both ends, crenulate but narrow at the mid-part. The apex of each alisphenoid joins the parietal; the extent of the spheno-parietal suture not exceeding three lines, that of the spheno-frontal suture is ten lines. The malars are not protuberant; on the contrary, the outer surface of each is concave--a rare variety. The deficiency of masticating machinery has prevailed long enough to affect the base of the zygomatic process; the chief part of the articular surface for the mandible is formed by the anterior, slight convexity (eminentia articularis), the smaller depression behind being unusually sha...
