Mammals, New Species March 16, 2015 at 12:00 am

Long mistaken for another species, this Australian marsupial, the Black-tailed Antechinus, may now be under threat from rising temperatures. That doesn’t stop it from enjoying a vigorous, if deadly, sex life.  Specimens of the new species, Antechinus arktos, were previously known to mammalogists but had been falsely assumed to belong to a common and widely distributed mainland subspecies of the Dusky Antechinus.
