IV.—On Acanthopholis Horridus, a New Reptile from the Chalk-marl

Some time since, my colleague, Dr. Percy, purchased from Mr. Griffiths, Some of Folkestone, and sent to me, certain fossils from the Chalk-marl near that town, which appeared to possess unusnal characters. On examining them I found that they were large scutes and spines entering into the dermal armour of what, I did not doubt, was a large reptile allied to Soelidosaurus, Hylœosaurus, and Polacanthus. I therefore requested Mr. Griffiths to procure for me every fragment of the skeleton which he could procure from the somewhat inconvenient locality (between tide-marks) in which the remains had been found, and I eventually succeeded in obtaining three teeth, with a number of fragments of the vertabræ, part of the skull and limb-bones, besides a large additional quantity of scutes. I am still not without hope of recovering other parts of the skeleton; but as the remains in my hands are sufficient to enable me to form a tolerably clear notion of the animal's structure, a brief notice of its main features will probably interest the readers of the Geological Magazine.
