Newcastle, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
Was in the past confused with A. leucophrys; see comments therein. Race chobiensis possibly better merged with neumanni, and marungensis possibly indistinguishable from either of those two. Proposed race daviesi (Eastern Cape, South Africa) included in nominate, and muhingae (SE DRCongo) in neumanni; birds of SE Botswana and NE South Africa sometimes separated as race clanceyi. The taxon “Long-tailed Pipit Anthus longicaudatus”, recognized in HBW, has been shown to be an amalgam of the present species and A. similis, and is invalid#R. Geographical limits of races difficult to establish; boundaries between listed ranges tentative. Six subspecies provisionally recognized.
