GENUS Parantechinus

Author:Tate, 1947.
Citation:Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 88: 137.
Type Species:Phascogale apicalis Gray, 1842.
Comments:Formerly included in Antechinus, and this allocation was continued by McKenna and Bell (1997), but Archer (1982) and Krajewski et al. (2000) showed that they are not sister-groups. Kitchener and Caputi (1988) restricted this genus to P. apicalis, which according to Krajewski et al. (1997a) is closely related to Dasykaluta.
