Fossils recovered from the Wipajiri Formation in northeastern South Australia, and the Camfield Beds of northcentral Northern Territory, Australia, document two previously unknown taxa of the Thylacoleonidae, Marsupialia. Wakaleo oldfieldi n. gen., n. sp., a member of the Kutjamarpu local fauna, and W. vanderleueri n. sp., a member of the Bullock Creek local fauna, demonstrate that the evolution of the Thylacoleonidae was well underway by the middle of the Tertiary.
