Original text on this topic:
Ossified mesethmoid in Rhinoceros sondaicus. The ossified mesethmoid (cf Fraser J. A. S. B., xliv, p. 10) is present in only two of the skulls in the collection; in one or two others, however, there are traces of where it should have been, but it has evidently dropped off in the cleaning of the skull; there can be little doubt that it will be found in all carefully cleaned skulls. The mesethmoid does not appear ever to be ossified in Rhinoceros unicornis.
