New South Wales, Australia.
N race chrysorrhos has in the past been considered a separate species. Geographical variation rather complex, and up to six races have been recognized on basis of differences in rump and abdomen colours and bill length, but this variation somewhat clinal. Proposed race magnirostris (NE Queensland) merged with chrysorrhos, and viridior (SE South Australia and Victoria) with nominate; coomooboolaroo (SC Queensland) and austina (interior of N & C New South Wales) considered to be intergrades between nominate and chrysorrhos. Two subspecies currently recognized.
