Abstract

Scats were collected from 19 wild spotted-tailed quolls (Dasyurus maculatus) caught in a region of south-eastern mainland Australia where hydatidosis (Echinococcus granulosus) occurs commonly in swamp wallabies (Wallabia bicolour) and other wildlife. All scats were tested for coproantigens of E. granulosus tapeworms. None of the scats tested had detectable coproantigens of E. granulosus. These data and previous unsuccessful attempts to experimentally infect other species of dasyruid with E. granulosus suggest that spotted-tailed quolls may be refractory to infection with E. granulosus.
