, : The macropodidae marsupialia from the allingham formation northern queensland australia results of the ray e lemley expeditions part 2. Memoirs of the Queensland Museum 18(2): 127-144

The fossil Macropodidae from the Bluff Downs fauna of the Allingham Formation, northern Queensland, of lower Pliocene age, are described. Eight taxa were recognized, although inconclusive evidence exists to suggest that additional taxa may be defined when broader collections become available. Potoroines are currently unknown and sthenurines [Sthenurus sp.] are very poorly represented. Macropodines predominate. Four species are new, Troposodon bluffensis, Protemnodon snewini, Macropus (Prionotemnus) narada and M. (Osphranter) pavana. Two species, M. (?P.) dryas and T. minor are known also from the Chinchilla Sand, although the latter species has a wide temporal range being well represented in Pleistocene deposits. The occurrence supports the previously ascribed late Pliocene age for the Chinchilla Sand. [Petrogale sp. was also discussed.].
