Notes

Extinct - Last sighting 1856-57.

'Little is known about the biology of this rodent. From owl pellets found in the Flinders Ranges it appears to have been a relatively common species in that area. Its decline seems to have occurred over the past hundred or so years.'

Joan M. Dixon, Facsimile of the Mammals of Australia, 1983.
