Other collections are discussed, including kangaroos Dorcopsis luctuosa and Macropus agilis specimens of which reside in the Macleay Museum but cannot be confi rmed as collected by the Chevert Expedition.Rodents, including Bramble Cay Melomys, Melomys rubicola, have been added to the list of mammals originally reported by Edward Pierson Ramsay.
