Sandstone dibbler (Pseudantechinus bilarni)
Also known as:
Northern dibbler, sandstone false antechinus,
The sandstone false antechinus was discovered in 1948 and described in 1954, when it was given the species name bilarni, which reflects the Aboriginal pronunciation of Bill Harney, an Australian writer and naturalist who accompanied the expedition that originally found it. It is an insectivorous species that, like many other dasyurids, so exhausts itself in the breeding season that most of the males die, although unlike some other species, about 25% of both sexes survive to a second year.
