AbstractSix cranial and two postcranial fossil and subfossil odobenid remains that have come to our notice since our 1986 paper on the same subject are described and discussed. One of these can, with some confidence, be identified as Odobenus antverpiensis (Rutten, 1907). The others either belong to the recent species, Odobenus rosmarus (Linnaeus, 1758), or should simply be identified as Odobenus species. Some remarks are made on the morphological differences between antverpiensis (perhaps identical with huxleyi) and rosmarus.
