    1. Reviewed by Rohan Clarke    Aug 5, 2008

    Action: changed name from "Dendrolagus lumholtzi" to "Dendrolagus spp. "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "This is not Dendrolagus lumholtzi. That species has largely grey pelage and is a North Queensland Australian endemic. This animal is either Goodfellow's Tree Kangaroo D. goodfellowi or Huon Tree Kangaroo D. matshiei based on pelage. Images showing dorsum or tail would confirm identification."
