Coppery brushtail possum        Images © Mark A. Chappell

Coppery brushtails are closely related to the widely distributed common brushtail, and some authorities consider them a subspecies rather than a separate species.   Coppery brushtails are restricted to a small area of rainforest in northeast Queensland.   These were photographed on the Atherton Tablelands.
