SPECIES Dorcopsis luctuosa

Author:D'Albertis, 1874.
Citation:Proc. Zool. Soc. Lond., 1874: 110.
Common Name:Grey Dorcopsis
Type Locality:"Southeast of New Guinea".
Distribution:S New Guinea.
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc). Common.
Comments:Usually included in D. veterum (= D. muelleri), but see Groves and Flannery (1989). The subspecies phyllis (Fly River district) is highly distinctive; it appears to fall outside the range of variation of nominotypical luctuosa (Port Moresby district), and is probably a distinct species.
