Certhilauda curvirostris brevirostris
Zoetendalsvlei, Bredasdorp, Western Cape, South Africa.
All members of genus with exception of C. chuana formerly treated as a single species, but recent research indicates that they are genetically, morphologically and vocally distinct. Present species and C. curvirostris appear to be sister-species (ranges apparently separated by Cape fold mountains, but boundary in Gouda-Tulbagh area not well known), and genetic data suggest that they are closely related to C. semitorquata. Possibly overlaps in range with C. subcoronata in Breede Valley. Monotypic.
Agulhas Plain and Breede Valley, in Western Cape, South Africa.
