Sorry, no etymologies found.
Historically, people have colonized Xanth from all over the world, always walking across the land bridge directly from their own countries-and all would have sworn that they migrated only a few miles.
The problem with using this mechanism to posit a Pleistocene land bridge between the islands of Timor and Flores is that even a fourhundred-foot full in sea level wouldn’t be sufficient.
Whereas most land bridge islands became insularized about twelve thousand years ago, at the end of the Pleistocene, Barro Colorado became insularized much more recently.
The other two divisions pushed through across the land bridge between the Psyol and the rail line to Prokhorovka and engaged the Red Army's 18th and 29th Tank Corps.
But Johnson himself, having looked at the geological and bathymetric data, concluded that apart from the bones of M. exilis, there was no cause for supposing that such a land bridge ever existed.
