Photographs of the hair structure of the five species of Tasmanian mammals (Sarcophilus harrisii, Thylacinus cynocephalus, Bettongia gaimardi, Cercartetus lepidus and Pseudomys higginsi) which have not been described by Brunner & Coman (1974) are presented. A key to the hair of forty Tasmanian mammals is provided to allow the identification of unknown samples. The key can be used in mammal surveys and in carnivore dietary studies.
