The Western Pygmy-possum, Cercartetus concinnus, was listed in August 1997 as an endangered species on Schedule 1 of the Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995 (TSC Act) because it was known from only two records in NSW and, therefore, exhibited a restricted distribution within the State.
In addition, C. concinnus was found in habitat that was threatened by clearing for cropping, had inappropriate fire regimes and contained introduced predators.
