Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Theodor Mortensen, 28 June 1906

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/12/18
Scope and Contents Mortensen writes concerning his query about P. phiale, a type of Pourtalesia, which he is trying to identify correctly from Wyville Thomson's description in his 'Memoir on the Echinoidea of the Porcupine Expedition' (1874) and from A. Agasse's report on the Challenger expedition. He asks if Ewart whether the 'Edinburgh Museum' might have a specimen for him to compare with his own.
