Original text on this topic:
The skull (see fig. 75, p. 297), is altogether larger than in the other species, and the portion behind the orbit is drawn out, so that the angle formed at the occipital crest between the parietal and occipital regions is a very acute one; the front portion, too, of the mandible is much more depressed and spatulated.
