( Figs 25 View FIG ; 107 View FIG )

Hypsiprymnus peron Quoy & Gaimard, 1824: 64   .

COMMON NAME. — Long-nosed Potoroo.

CURRENT NAME. — Potorous tridactylus ( Kerr, 1792)   .

See Jackson & Groves (2015: 140).

COLLECTOR/S. — Charles Alexandre Lesueur, contra Quoy & Gaimard (1824: 64); Girard (1856: 118); de Beaufort (1966: 536); Julien-Laferrière (1994: 24) who mentioned Péron as its collector. COLLECTION LOCALITY. — New South Wales, Australia ( Calaby & Richardson 1988: 58). We designate near Port Jackson (Sydney), New South Wales, Australia as type location. COLLECTION DATE. — Between 3 July and 18 November 1802. SPECIMEN NUMBER/S. — MNHN-ZM-AC-1883-351 ( Fig. 25 View FIG ), holotype, skull and post cranial skeleton   (de Beaufort 1966: 536-537).

OTHER NUMBER/S. — Cat. Anat. Comp. A2649 and CAG I-818.

COMMENTS. — Beaufort (1966: 536-537) noted that the specimen was re-tagged after being studied by Quoy & Gaimard, which explains why it carries many annotations and so could be confused with the specimen reported by these authors. He also advised that these authors did not have any specimens of this species.
