    Where does this leave the New Guinea populations of Sugar Glider?

      Phil. Looking at the discussion on the Aus mammal group on Facebook it seems that Cape York sugar gliders are still under review as to where they fit in this (if at all). Presumably the PNG animals will be the same species.

    THanks Michael – interesting. I had heard talk about the Savanna Glider before but not on the other split. I hope so – two new for me!

    Note that there is no nuclear DNA data and no data from supposed contact zones. I think it’s better to wait for those before accepting the split. MtDNA-based changes to taxonomy often prove to be misguided.
