SPECIES Antechinus agilis

Author:Dickman, Parnaby, Crowther and King, 1998.
Citation:Aust. J. Zool., 46: 5.
Common Name:Agile Antechinus
Type Locality:Australia, Australian Capital Territory, Brindabella Range, on the south side of Warks Road and Blundells Creek Road, near Lees Creek (352145"S, 1485017"E), 740 m.
Distribution:Australia: Victoria (SW, and C, E and NE districts), and SE New South Wales north on the coast to Kioloa (3532'S, 15023'E), and inland north to Mt. Canobolas (3310'S, 14900'E).
Comments:Dickman et al. (1988) first showed that A. stuartii in E New South Wales is actually divided into two quite distinct species: A. stuartii north of about 35S, and an undescribed species mainly south of this latitude. The new species was not described for another ten years (Dickman et al., 1998). The two species are sympatric at Kioloa, New South Wales, and other places.
