New Holland mouse Pseudomys novaehollandiae (Rodentia: Muridae) in South Gippsland, southern Victoria. Part one - distribution and status



New Holland mouse Pseudomys novaehollandiae (Rodentia: Muridae) in South Gippsland, southern Victoria. Part one - distribution and status



Victorian Naturalist (Blackburn). October; 1135: 236-246



Results of a survey for New Holland Mouse Pseudomys novaehollandiae populations in areas of South Gippsland, conducted by the then Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (currently Department of Natural Resources and Environment) in 1992-1993 are outlined. The survey employed trapping, hair-tubing and the collection of predator scats to determine the distribution of this species. Two previously unknown populations of New Holland Mouse totalling 15 individuals were located in vegetated sand dunes on the Yanakie Isthmus, Wilsons Promontory National Park. However, populations which were previously known from the Promontory and McLoughlins Beach (Nooramunga Marine and Coastal Park) are believed to be no longer present. The species was not detected at two further areas formerly known to support it, Dream/Hummock Island and Mullungdung State Forest. This, the Wilsons Promontory populations currently represent the only populations of New Holland Mice known from South Gippsland where the species' range is in decline. Management issues for the New Holland Mouse in South Gippsland will be the subject of a follow-up paper. Distribution and habitat of other small ground mammals are noted. Generally, these species occurred in habitats similar to those found in previous studies.
