The last family, Chrysochloridae, is represented by the golden moles of South and East Africa, which differ from the Centetidae and Solenodontidae by the development of a bulla to the tympanic, and the presence of a zygomatic arch to the Golden skull; the tibia and fibula being separate, and the sym- physis of the pelvis forThed merely by ligament.
