Errata and taxonomic updates

ERRATA

last updated January 2016

p. 5 Table 1.1. Criterion B2: Area of Occupancy should be < 500 km2

p. 29 Macropus irma. Date of authority should be 1837 not 1937.

p. 43 Rhinolophus robertsi. Should be EN9 (not VU9) in EPBC Act status column.

p. 46 Pseudomys novaehollandiae. Should be VU in EPBC Act status column.

p. 73. Dasyurus geoffroii. Legal status in Victoria should be Regionally Extinct. Legal status in Queensland is Extinct in the Wild.

p. 125. Phascogale pirata. Range: P. pirata has been recorded on Melville Island, but not on Bathurst Island.

pp. 174, 177. Southern Brown Bandicoot Isoodon obesulus. The maps for Isoodon obesulus and I. o. obesulus show no post-1992 records for the species on the Franklin Islands and St Francis Island, South Australia, even though the text reports these subpopulations as extant. Recent surveys have confirmed their extant status (Jason van Weenan, pers. comm.). The post-1992 records on the Yorke Peninsula shown on the map on p. 177 are incorrect as they were subfossil.

p. 218. Lasiorhinus krefftii gillespiei. Legal status in Queensland should be Endangered (listed as the full species).

p. 234. Gymnobelideus leadbeateri Range. The subfossil data reported by Bilney et al. (2010) came from Sooty Owls Tyto tenebricosa not Masked Owls.

p. 380. Onychogalea fraenata. Legal status in Victoria should be Regionally Extinct.

pp. 391-400. Petrogale concinna. Recent works has shown that there have been no records of the Kimberley subspecies, P. c. monastria, on the mainland since 1974. The maps for the full species (p. 391) and for P. c. monastria (p. 398) are now known to be incorrect as they show mainland records since 1992. Nabarleks do not co-occur with Monjon at Artesian Range as stated on p. 399. The ‘Near Threatened’ status in the MAP is therefore incorrect and both the full species and the Kimberley subspecies meet criteria for Vulnerable.

p. 400. Petrogale godmani. The three north-western pre-1992 records shown from Cape York would actually be P. coenensis. P. godmani is not known from this area, only P. coenensis, but older specimens may still be incorrectly labelled as P. godmani. The most southerly pre-1993 record from central Queensland is also an error.

p. 422. Petrogale penicillata. The northern-most post-1992 record would be a mis-labelled P. herberti. P. penicillata is only found as far north as near Nanango.

p. 450. Notoryctes caurinus. Kakarratul is mis-spelled under ‘Justification’.

p. 468. Pteropus macrotis. Legal status in Queensland should be Least Concern.

p. 476 Canis lupus dingo. Legal status in Victoria should be Threatened (Data Deficient).

p. 498. Hipposideros semoni. Legal status in Queensland is Endangered.

p. 568. Conilurus albipes Former abundance. The subfossil data reported by Bilney et al. (2010) came from Sooty Owls Tyto tenebricosa not Masked Owls.

p. 591. Authority for Mastacomys fuscus mordicus should be Thomas, 1922.

p. 622. Pseudomys australis. Legal status in Queensland should be Endangered.

p. 641. Pseudomys novaehollandiae. Legal status in Victoria should be Threatened (Vulnerable).

p. 1030. Index. Marsupial-mole, Northern. Kakarratul is mis-spelled.

Rock-wallaby taxonomic changes

In the Action Plan (p. 22) we stated

‘No subspecies are currently recognised for P. brachyotis, but recent research (Potter et al. 2012) indicates marked variation between populations in the Kimberley, Victoria River District and the rest of the Top End of the Northern Territory. This may be best treated as two (Northern Territory, Kimberley) or three species. Here, we recognise three taxa within what is currently considered P. brachyotis: P. b. [Kimberley] sensu Potter et al. (2012), P. b. [Top End] sensu Potter et al. (2012) and P. b. [Victoria River District] sensu Potter et al. (2012)’.

The taxonomic status has subsequently been resolved and formalised by Potter et al. (2014). This reinstates the name P. wilkinsi (Thomas 1926) (Wilkin’s Rock-wallaby or Eastern Short-eared Rock-wallaby) for subpopulations in mainland Northern Territory east of the Victoria River District and Groote Eylandt, Bickerton Island, and islands of the Sir Edward Pellew, Wessel and English Company Group). It also formally describes the subspecies P. b. brachyotis (from the Kimberley and adjacent far north-western Northern Territory) and P. b. victoriae (currently known from four localities east/north of the Victoria River, NT).

Potter S, Close RL, Taggart DA, Cooper SJB, Eldridge MDB (2014). Taxonomy of rock-wallabies, Petrogale (Marsupialia: Macropodidae). IV. Multifaceted study of the brachyotis group identifies additional taxa. Australian Journal of Zoology 62, 401–414. http://dx.doi.org/10.1071/ZO13095.

Thomas, O. (1926). Two new rock-wallabies (Petrogale) discovered by Capt. G.W. Wilkins in Northern Australia. Annals and Magazine of Natural History Series 9. 17, 184-187.

Note that in the Action Plan we evaluated the taxa now known as Petrogale brachyotis victoriae as Near Threatened (approaches B1ab(iii); C1) and P. b. brachyotis and P. wilkinsi as Least Concern.

Taxon proposed for changing from subspecies to species

The Dingo, included in the Action Plan as Canis lupus dingo, has been proposed as a full species. The taxonomic status of the Dingo has been and continues to be contested.

Crowther MS, Fillios M, Coleman N, Letnic M (2014). An updated description of the Australian dingo (Canis dingo Meyer, 1793). Journal of Zoology 293, 192-203. doi:10.1111/jzo.12134.

However, note that Jackson and Groves (2015, see below), have proposed that the dingo is Canis familiaris.



Jackson S, Groves C (2015) Taxonomy of Australian mammals. (CSIRO Publishing: Clayton South.)

This major work has proposed several amendments to the taxonomy of Australian mammals. An updated list of Australian mammals developed from the list in the Action Plan, incorporating the changes proposed in Jackson & Groves as well as other changes described above, follows.
