|Scientific Name:||Thylogale thetis|
|Species Authority:||(Lesson, 1827)|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Least Concern ver 3.1|
|Assessor/s:||Ellis, M., Denny, M., Burnett, S. & Lunney, D.|
|Reviewer/s:||Lamoreux, J. & Hilton-Taylor, C. (Global Mammal Assessment Team)|
Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, large population, occurrence in a number of protected areas, tolerance to some degree of habitat modification, and because its overall population is not in decline.
|Range Description:||This species is endemic to eastern Australia, where it ranges from extreme south-east Queensland (Lamington National Park) to central eastern New South Wales. It previously occurred on the far south coast of New South Wales but has not been recorded from here since the 1890's.|

|Population:||It is a common species (Johnson 2008).|
|Habitat and Ecology:||This species is generally found close to the edge of dense rainforest and eucalypt forest; it often occurs where forest meets grassy areas or pasture (Johnson 2008). It is sometimes considered a pest in agricultural lands. The females reach sexual maturity at about 17 months of age and breed continuously (Johnson 2008).|
|Major Threat(s):||There appear to be no major threats to this species. Clearing for agricultural land resulted in the extinction of the southern New South Wales populations, and decreased the range of the northern populations.|
|Conservation Actions:||It occurs in many protected areas.|
