SPECIES Antechinus stuartii

Author:Macleay, 1841.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., [ser. 1], 8: 242.
Common Name:Brown Antechinus
Type Locality:Australia, New South Wales, Manly (Spring Cove, Sydney Harbour); neotype from Waterfall, Royal National Park.
Distribution:SE Queensland, E New South Wales south to Kioloa (3532'S, 15023'E). Bioclimatic modeling predicts an almost entirely coastal distribution, north to about 26S (Sumner and Dickman, 1998).
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Dickman et al. (1988) showed that what had been thought to be the single species A. stuartii in E New South Wales is actually divided into a northern and a southern species: A. stuartii and what is now (Dickman et al., 1998) named A. agilis; the two have been found together at Kioloa, in S New South Wales.
