Abstract

The early Pliocene Hamilton local fauna from southwestern Victoria, Australia, has at least fifteen kinds of macropodoids including propleopines, potoroines, hypsiprymnodontines, sthenurines, and macropodines. New taxa described here include a potoroine, and three new species of macropodine. The other ten genera present are represented by specimens for which no species assignment has been made. Several extant genera whose living species are almost exclusively rain forest or rain forest fringe dwellers occur in the fauna, suggesting that the fossil assemblage predominantly represents a rain forest environment. -from Authors
