Abstract

A new species of Thylogale (Marsupialia: Macropodidae) has been described on material from an archaeological deposit in Mapala rock shelter, situated at 3996 m in the Jaya Mountains, Irian Jaya, Indonesia. The remains of Thylogale brunii and several other mammal species are also present. The faunal material lies above a level dated at 5440±130 BP, but the present status of either species of Thylogale in montane western New Guinea is unknown.
