Vigors and Horsfield, 1827,
Parramatta, New South Wales, Australia.
See C. tasmanicus (above). Much early confusion over correct specific name of present species; originally called C. australis, but identity and provenance of type specimen were suspect and the name was preoccupied; as a consequence, was named C. marianae, but that is a synonym for the earlier C. coronoides, which takes priority. Recent genetic study#R suggested that races represent two different clades and should be treated as two distinct species. Purported taxon difficilis was based on an aberrant, immature specimen of present species and is invalid. Two subspecies recognized.
