SPECIES Sminthopsis boullangerensis

Author:Crowther, Dickman and Lynam, 1999.
Citation:Aust. J. Zool., 47: 220.
Common Name:Boullanger Island Dunnart
Type Locality:Australia, Western Australia, Boullanger Isl (3018S, 11502E), Jurien Bay.
Distribution:Boullanger Isl, and on the mainland at Lesueur, near Jurien; subfossil material near Hastings Cave may belong to this species according to the describers.
Comments:Described as a subspecies of S. griseoventer, but Crowther et al. (1999) described fixed differences in both morphology and allozymes from what they provisionally referred to as S. g. griseoventer, and considered their placement of boullangerensis as "conservative".
