Research notes

Catalogue Book 2 (CB2) states from New Guinea, but Deanne Hanchant from South Australia Museum identified it, 28 Nov 1995, as being Narrindjeri (South Australia).

Items 3001 to 3324 were the Anthropological Society of Queensland Collection which was donated at the foundation of the Anthropology Museum in 1949.
