Species[edit]

This article recognises two species of mulgara, D. cristicauda and D. blythi. My Australian references don't mention D. blythi (even as a subspecies) but do mention the Ampurta, D. hillieri. The IUCN lists all three. Can someone explain this for me? Frickeg 03:00, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

MSW3 recognizes only cristicauda, calling blighi, blythi, and hillieri as synonyms. However, reference 2 is more recent than MSW3, so it takes precedence and recognizes two species, cristicauda and blythi. - UtherSRG (talk) 10:21, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Type Species[edit]

Could someone please explain to me why the type species in this article is of a completely different genus? Ravenicus451 (talk) 15:16, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

This is a good start to an article but lacks a lot of biological information about the genus; subheadings could help. It would also be good to see individual articles for the two species. Frickeg 04:39, 17 February 2007 (UTC)
