GENUS Dasyurus

Author:. Geoffroy, 1796.
Citation:Mag. Encyclop., ser. 2, 3: 469.
Type Species:Didelphis maculata Anon., 1791 (= Didelphis viverrina Shaw, 1800).
Comments:See Haltenorth (1958:20). Archer (1982) revived Satanellus (for albopunctatus and hallucatus), as he considered that the remaining species might belong in a clade with Sarcophilus; but Krajewski et al. (1997a), using molecular data, confirmed that Dasyurus is monophyletic.
