The mammals of Kumul Lodge, Enga Province, Papua New Guinea, with notes on Calaby’s Pademelon Thylogale calabyi
Over a period of 14 years (2006–2019) 15 visits were made to Kumul Lodge in Enga Province, Papua New Guinea. Forty hours of nocturnal searching spanning 31 observation-nights with occasional daytime-sightings resulted in 11 species of native mammals being recorded in the lodge grounds. Of most importance were sightings of the rare Calaby’s Pademelon Thylogale calabyi. Observations and photographs of this poorly known and threatened macropod are presented. Three species—the dasyurid Murexia melanurus and rodents Lorentzimys nouhuysi and Rattus steini are reported in Enga Province, for the first time.
