|Etymology||Etymology” "Among those who have taken advantage of the opportunity afforded by world conditions to extend our knowledge of the fauna in distant places, is Gunner G. T. R. Tovell of the Australian Forces. At the conclusion of hostilities it is hoped to publish a full report on the material he has so generously contributed. The present paper deals only with an addition to the Australian herpetofauna, with which I am glad to associate the discoverer's name by calling it... Typhlops tovelli sp. nov.” [LOVERIDGE 1945]|
