John Gould (1863) and another. Gould's drawings distinguish between Echidna hystrix and Echidna setosa, now combined under Tachyglossus aculeatus.

Anonymous drawing c. 1792. Click to enlarge. The drawing is sometimes falsely credited to George Shaw; a copy of it appeared in Shaw's 1792 description of the "Short-beaked echidnas," the first published description of the echidna. Detailed, scholarly page courtesy Natural History Museum (UK).

PDF: Early drawings of the echidna, including Captain William Bligh's are spotlighted in the Autumn 2002 Puggle Post (newsletter of the Pelican Lagoon Research Centre).
