A second group of rodent pollinators (excluding bats) includes a number of marsupials (incl. honey possums, sugar gliders) that visit Australian Proteaceae. These animals are more adapted to climbing around on the plants. A number of Banksia species feature this adaptation although our current accession, Banksia serrata, is wind pollinated and not known to be rodent pollinated.
