Are there millions of species of Koala?

Definitely not. There are not even millions of koalas.

There is only one species of koala (Phascolarctus Cinereus), and some disagreement about whether there are two or three sub-species, or indeed, whether there are any sub-species at all.

According to the Australian Koala Foundation, the generally accepted sub-species are:

  • Phascolarctos Cinereus adustus - Northern Australia/Queensland
  • Phascolarctos Cinereus cinereus - Intermediate/New South Wales
  • Phascolarctos Cinereus victor - Southern/Victorian
