Abstract

Current lists of species-level representation in faunas from 80 Cenozoic fossil localities at the Riversleigh World Heritage Area have been compiled by review of recorded occurrences of taxa obtained from both published and unpublished sources. More than 290 species-level taxa are represented, comprising mammals, amphibians, reptiles, birds, fishes, molluscs and crustaceans. The data are presented for the purpose of ongoing palaeoecological and biochronological studies.
