Taxonomy & Nomenclature
Synonym/s: Dasyurus geoffroyi geoffroyi Gould, 1841
The validity of D. g. fortis has been called into question on both genetic (Firestone, 1999) and morphometrical (Serena et al. 1991) grounds. If all individuals of D. geoffroii are found to belong to the same subspecies (i.e. monotypy) then the nominate subspecies should be considered as rediscovered.
