Abstract

The.female Dendrolagus described below, which was received at Taronga Zoological Park in 1935 through the courteous efforts of Mr. O. J. Atkinson, provides what appears to be the south-easternmost Papuan record for the genus,and apparently represents a new pale-faced drabby brown form of the dorianus group. When immature the animal was of an even. dark-brown colour, but has since developed a strikingly pallid facial coloration in contrast with the dark muzzle, ears, and drabby brown body.
