GENUS Murexia

Author:Tate and Archbold, 1937.
Citation:Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 73: 335 (footnote), 339.
Type Species:Phascogale murex Thomas, 1913 (= Phascogale longicaudata Schlegel, 1866).
Comments:Some of these species have traditionally been assigned to Antechinus, but so-called "New Guinea Antechinus" were transferred to Murexia by Armstrong et al. (1998). The undescribed species from Normanby Isl in the D’Entrecasteaux group, Papua New Guinea (Flannery, 1995a) is actually Murexechinus melanurus according to Van Dyck (2002).
