A new genus and species of late Pleistocene rodent is described from a cave deposit in eastern Australia. The description is based on an unusually well-preserved holotype and five paratypes belonging to the murid subfamily Pseudomyinae. This material represents a taxon intermediate between the extant genera Pseudomys and Leporillus; comments are made on the phylogenetic implications of this discovery.
