“dans les indes” = Peron Peninsula, Western Australia.
Original type locality not clearly specified, leading to confusion as to which of races was nominate form; type specimen formerly thought to be from E Australia, with W populations awarded race assimilis, but discovery that specimen belonged to W race led to necessary revision of nomenclature. Has hybridized in the wild with Cacatua leadbeateri and C. sanguinea#R. Proposed form howei (described from C Australia) regarded as representing intergrades between nominate and albiceps#R. Three subspecies currently recognized.
