Une revision systematique des Monotremes du genre Zaglossus a montre une diversite morphologique inattendue. L'analyse statistique et non metrique indique qu'on peut reconnaitre trois especes: Zaglossus bruijnii (Peters et Doria, 1876) qui habite dans les regions de Vogelkop, Fak Fak et les Montagnes de Charles Louis; Zaglossus bartoni (Thomas, 1907) qui se trouve dans la cordillere centrale entre les Lacs Paniai et la chaine de montagnes Nanneau, ainsi que dans la Peninsule Huon; et Zaglossus… 
Twentieth century occurrence of the Long-Beaked Echidna Zaglossus bruijnii in the Kimberley region of Australia
It is concluded that, like Tachyglossus, Zaglossus is part of the modern fauna of the Kimberley region of Western Australia, where it apparently survived as a rare element into the twentieth century, and may still survive.
Bothriocroton oudemansi (Neumann, 1910) n. comb. (Acari: Ixodida: Ixodidae), an ectoparasite of the western long-beaked echidna in Papua New Guinea: redescription of the male and first description of the female and nymph
Specimens of Amblyomma oudemansi (Neumann, 1910) were collected in Papua New Guinea from an endangered monotreme, Zaglossus bruijni (Peters & Doria), the western long-beaked echidna. These ticks were
A review of monotreme (Monotremata) evolution
Abstract Advances in dating and systematics have prompted a revision of monotreme evolution to refine the timing of adaptative trends affecting body size and craniodental morphology. The oldest known
A new species of Litoria (Amphibia: Anura: Hylidae) from the foothills of the Foja Mountains, Papua Province, Indonesia
Litoria gasconi sp. nov. is described from low, forest-covered ridges on the southern edge of the Foja Mountains, Papua Province, Indonesia. It is most similar to Litoria multiplica (Tyler, 1964) but
Kruia rediscovered: phylogenetic implications, larval mor- phology, and biology of an enigmatic hydrophilid beetle from western Africa (Coleoptera: Hydrophilidae)
The enigmatic terrestrial water scavenger beetle (Hydrophilidae: Sphaeridiinae: Coelostomatini) of the genus Kruia Spangler & Perkins, 1981 is rediscovered at two forested localities in Cameroon and the genus-group name Kruia is considered a junior synonym of Dactylosternum.
Chapter 8. Biodiversity and Biogeography of the Moss-mice of New Guinea: A Taxonomic Revision of Pseudohydromys (Muridae: Murinae)
Morphological investigations involving nearly all available museum material representing New Guinea “moss-mice” reveal outstanding undiagnosed taxic diversity and allow for redefinition of generic boundaries among these little-studied rodents.
The amphibious murines of New Guinea (Rodentia, Muridae): the generic status of Baiyankamys and description of a new species of Hydromys
Mammalian zoogeography in the North Coast Ranges, an area of considerable geographicallyrestricted mammalian endemism, is reviewed and two new species of Hydromys are described.
The Mammal Fauna of Wanakipa, Southern Highlands Province, Papua New Guinea
We undertook a survey of mammal diversity and indigenous knowledge of mammals in Hewa country, in the vicinity of Wanakipa village, Southern Highlands Province, during July 2008. Specimens collected
Using local ecological knowledge to locate the western long-beaked echidna Zaglossus bruijnii on the Vogelkop Peninsula, West Papua, Indonesia
The Critically Endangered western long-beaked echidna Zaglossus bruijnii is believed to be distributed throughout the Vogelkop Peninsula in the Indonesian Province of West Papua, but there had
The early development of the echidna, Tachyglossus aculeatus (Mammalia: Monotremata), and patterns of mammalian development
Mammals to be characterized by late eye and ear development, possibly related to their contrasting early postnatal life history, and the limitation of interpreting heterochronic data is highlighted and the plasticity in the timing of developmental characters is exposed.


Observations on the sk ulls of fossil and extant echidnas (Monotremata: Tachyglossidae).
The anatomies of four well-preserved, fossilised tachyglossid skulls from Naracoorte, South Australia are described and compared with that of a fossilised skull from north-western Tasmania, with
