Cape of Good Hope, South Africa.
Species name sometimes erroneously spelt leucomelan, leucomelaena or leucomelaina, but original leucomelas must stand (as being non-Latinized Greek). Closely related to T. diademata (which see) and T. frontata. Occasionally interbreeds with T. frontata in S Zambia. Fairly closely related also to T. lacrymosa. Proposed race namaqua (W South Africa) included within nominate, nkatiensis (N Botswana) within centralis, and zuluensis (SE Zimbabwe S to E South Africa) within affinis. Three subspecies currently recognized.
