The genus Planigale was created for this animal in 1928. The specimen is preserved in fluid and contained in a rectangular, glass battery jar. The Long-tailed Planigale is a small, carnivorous marsupial that inhabits varied habitats in Australia's Top End. It is the smallest of all marsupials, and one of the smallest of all mammals.
