Brachial, antebrachial and carpal bones from the hairy-nosed wombat (Lasiorhinus latifrons) and common wombat (Vombatus ursinus) are, with the exception of the first and second carpal bones, all distinguishable. Likewise the pelvis, femur, tibia, fibula and epi pubic bones from the hairy-nosed wombat (L. latifrons) and common wombat (V. ursinus} all have specific characteristic differences. To facilitate rapid specimen identification at the generic level, the different gross morphological features are summarised…
