Range Description

The Lemuroid Ringtail Possum occurs in Australian rainforests in two distinct localities: one is above 450 m elevation between Ingham and Cairns, north Queensland, and a smaller population above 1,100 m asl occurs on the Mt. Carbine Tableland, west of Mossman (Winter et al. 2008). The area of occupancy has declined as a result of clearing and fragmentation of rainforest.
