the common ringtail, Pseudocheirus peregrinus, widespread down eastern
Australia to Tasmania and also S W Western Australia.

My understading (supported by Menkhorst & Knight's "A Field Guide to the Mammals of Australia" 2001 edition) is that Common Ringtail is found exclusively in eastern Australia. The ringtails here in WA belong to a different species, the Western Ringtail Possum (P.occidentalis) and are quite rare, although they are quite easily found around Busselton town.
