NOTORYCTIDAE (Marsupial Moles)
The Notoryctidae is a family of subterranean marsupials confined to the
arid central regions
of Australia. Its two living representatives are Notoryctes typhlops (Northern Territory,
southeastern Western Australia, and western and northern South Australia), and Notoryctes
caurinus (northeastern Western Australia); some authorities do not distinguish these as
separate species. The family is assigned to the Order Notoryctemorphia.
