- In entomology, in Latreille's system, a group of chilognath myriapods, corresponding to the Polyxenidæ of Westwood: so called from having the body terminated by pencils of small scales.
“The mammals include a number of well-known animals such as the eastern grey kangaroo Macropus giganteus, the red-necked wallaby M. rufogriseus, wallaroo M. robustus, koala Phasocarctos cinereus and wombat Vombatus ursinus, the greater glider Petaurus volans, the squirrel glider P. norfolcensis, mountain brushtailed possum Trichosurus caninus; also the rarer spotted-tailed quoll Dasyurus maculatus (VU), long-nosed potoroo Potorous tridactylus (VU), yellow-bellied glider Petaurus australis and brush-tailed rock wallaby Petrogale penicillata (VU).”
“The narrow strip of tall open forest is crucial for the conservation of the northern populations of three species of mammals that are restricted to this forest type, namely: yellow-bellied glider Petaurus australis, brush-tailed bettong Bettongia penicillata (E) and swamp rat Rattus lutreolus.”
“Threatened mammals include the brush-tailed rock-wallaby (Petrogale penicillata VU) and the Hastings River mouse (Pseudomys oralis EN).”
“A number of other species are largely restricted to the mesic southwest and found in this ecoregion: the yellow-footed antechinus (Antechinus flavipes leucogaster), southern brown bandicoot (Isoodon obesulus), and the woylie (Bettongia penicillata ogilbyi).”
“Although there are no endemic mammals, threatened mammals native to this ecoregion include the kultarr (Antechinomys laniger DD), the spotted-tailed quoll (Dasyurus maculatus VU), bridled nailtail wallaby (Onychogalea fraenata EN), and brush-tailed rock-wallaby (Petrogale penicillata VU).”
“A Jurassic Crossopterygius (Undina penicillata), from the upper Jurassic at Eichstatt.”
“A number of endangered or restricted range mammals are found in this ecoregion, including the numbat (Myrmecobius fasciatus VU), chuditch (Dasyurus geoffroii VU), woylie (Bettongia penicillata), tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii), ringtail possum (Pseudocheirus occidentalis VU), southern brown bandicoot (Isoodon obesulus), and red-tailed phascogales (Phascogale calura EN).”
