AbstractThe dimensions are given of three skulls of Lipotes vexillifer, the only specimens preserved in collections outside of China. At the same time drawings of the Lipotes vexillifer skull in the British Museum (Natural History) have been made and published with a photograph of the London specimen before it was dissected. Reasons are stated for refuting the affinity of Lipotes with Platanista, as postulated by Hinton & Pycraft (1922).
