The black-spotted cuscus is a nocturnal marsupial known only from northern parts of the island of New Guinea. It is thought to have been driven to the brink of extinction by increasing human pressure on its forest habitat. One of the largest species of cuscus, this species is targeted by hunters throughout its range. This hunting pressure, together with large-scale habitat conversion for agriculture and settlements throughout its range has drastically reduced numbers, and wiped out the species from many parts of its former range.
