Photographed by Will Osborne. He found the dead sugar glider near the edge of the new Ginninderry to Sheppard's Lookout walking track (just 15 m from where the new track meets the existing Shepherds Lookout track).

Don can you remind me again is Krefts just another name for breviceps and should I merge the breviceps and notates records together?

Thanks Michael

Hi Michael, the two look the same but their DNA is different. West of the Great Dividing Range they are Kreffts (notatus) and to the east they are Sugars (breviceps) . So the taxonomists have said.
