Summary The isolated lower molar series of a dasyurid from early Pleistocene sediments at Nelson Bay, near Portland, is referred herein to Sarcophilus laniarius harrisii (Boitard, 1842). Dental measurements and morphological comparisons taken from this tooth series compare closely with those of the extant subspecies. The genus Sarcophilus is known from the early Pleistocene by the species S. moornaensis Crabb 1982. Fossil material assigned to S. laniarius harrisii is now also known from Early Pleistocene sediments. The new specimens from Nelson Bay extend the origin of S. laniarius harrisii to the early Pleistocene.
