Abstract

The western pygmy-possum (Cercartetus concinnus) is probably the last remaining small native ground-dwelling mammal on Yorke Peninsula. We surveyed 1013 Yorke Peninsula residents about the distribution of pygmy-possums on the peninsula. Thirteen of 296 respondents had seen pygmy-possums, none north of Minlaton. Two additional possum species had also been seen.
