Common striped possums (Dactylopsila trivirgata) inhabit Australia and New Guinea, including some nearby islands. In Australia they are restricted to northeastern Queensland, ranging from the tip of the Cape York Peninsula in the north to Mt. Spec in the south. They are widespread over this limited range, but is quite rare. In New Guinea they are much more common and distributed throughout the lowlands and foothills.
