The mountain pygmy possum was only known from fossil records until it was discovered in the Australian Alps in 1966 (3). This small marsupial has fine dense fur, which is grey on the back and a creamy colour underneath (2). Males develop a more fawn-orange coat during the breeding season (2). The tail is prehensile and, at 14 cm, is longer than the body (2).
