Author's notes

I believe Mountain Brushtail Possum . Can anyone confirm?

I need to raise this with Micheal M but our 'Mountain Brushtail' might be the T. cunninghami, not the T. caninus species. (The latter is not listed as occurring here under Possums and Gliders.) Also we might do better to change the common name to Southern Bobuck.
