(syn. Acanthiza Ϯ Striated Thornbill A. lineata) L. sub near to; genus Acanthiza Vigors & Horsfield, 1827, thornbill; "ACANTHIZA LINEATA. STRIATED TIT. ... This species differs from A. pusilla, the type of Acanthiza, in its short stout bill, not so long or broad as that of Milligania, with the nasal groove occupying nearly half its length, the rictal bristles strong and prominent and in its shorter stouter feet showing obscurely scutes on the front of the tarsus. It seems worthy of at least subgeneric rank, and I therefore propose for it the new name SUBACANTHIZA" (Mathews 1922).
