Examples of "antechinomys"
The kultarr is the sole member of the "Antechinomys" genus of the family Dasyuridae. Originally collected by Sir Thomas Mitchell in New South Wales it was subsequently described as "Phascogale lanigera" by John Gould in 1856. It was then moved into its own separate genus of "Antechinomys" by Krefft in 1867 and in 1888 the species was formally named "Antechinomys laniger".
In 1906 a second distinct species of "Antechinomys" genus was described from specimens collected from an expedition to central Australia, classified as "Antechinomys spenceri". Consequently, extensive revision occurred as to whether a separate unique species of "Antechinomys" existed. In 1981 it was proposed that "Antechinomys" was not distinct enough from "Sminthopsis" genus, subsequent isozyme and mitochondrial analysis proved the theory to be incorrect. Both "A. laniger laniger" and "A. laniger spenceri" are now accepted as being two distinct sub-species with minor morphological differences, both occurring over different geographic ranges. The "A. laniger laniger" occurs in eastern Australia and the "A. laniger spenceri" occurring in western and central Australia. Morphological differences include "A. laniger spenceri" having a paler colour and heavier compared to the "A. laniger laniger".
The kultarr ("Antechinomys laniger") (also called the "jerboa-marsupial") is a small insectivorous nocturnal marsupial inhabiting the arid interior of Australia. Preferred habitat includes stony deserts, shrubland, woodland, grassland and opens plains. The kultarr has a range of adaptations to help cope with Australia’s harsh arid environment including torpor similar to hibernation that helps conserve energy The species has declined across its former range since European settlement due to changes in land management practices and introduced predators.
These grasslands are the western limit for much of the wildlife that lives here as further west is desert. Wildlife of the savanna includes mammals such as the mouse-like kultarr marsupial ("Antechinomys laniger"), tiger quoll ("Dasyurus maculatus"), and brush-tailed rock-wallaby ("Petrogale penicillata"). The western barred bandicoot ("Perameles bougainville fasciata") and bridled nail-tail wallaby that once lived here are now presumed extinct in New South Wales. Birds include the endangered bush stone-curlew ("Burhinus grallarius"), superb parrot ("Polytelis swainsonii"), red goshawk ("Erythrotriorchis radiatus"), malleefowl ("Leipoa ocellata") and plains-wanderer ("Pedionomus torquatus"), and reptiles include an endangered skink "Anomalopus mackayi". The Riverina grasslands are home to birds such as the freckled duck, and wintering populations of swift parrot ("Lathamus discolor").
