Conilurus capricornensis Cramb & Hocknull

Capricorn Rabbit Rat (Conilurus capricornensis)

The Capricorn Rabbit Rat was described in 2010 based on fossil and subfossil dental remains that were recovered from the deposits inside the Capricorn Cave in Queensland, Australia and that can be dated to Late Pleistocene- to Early Holocene age.

The species probably died out sometimes during the Early Holocene.
