The Kultarr, Antechinomys laniger, is widespread across arid Australia but is uncommon over much of its range. Declines have occurred regionally in NSW, Queensland, and South Australia, but are not apparent in Western Australia or the Northern Territory (Dickman et al. 1993, Ayers et al. 1996). The Kultarr appears to have disappeared from Victoria, south-eastern SA, some parts of QLD (Sandringham Station) and southern NSW (Maxwell et al. 1996). Throughout the remainder of its range in NSW, the population is suspected to have declined to a critical level.
