Port Essington, Northern Territory, Australia.
Closely related to C. goffiniana. Sometimes considered conspecific with C. pastinator, and in the past these two treated as conspecific with C. tenuirostris; but current evidence suggests that the three are probably best considered to constitute three separate species. Has hybridized in the wild with Callocephalon fimbriatum and Eolophus roseicapilla#R. Race westralensis sometimes subsumed within gymnopis. Proposed race subdistincta (from Kimberley, in N Western Australia) included within nominate; ashbyi (from Yanco Glen, N of Broken Hill, in W New South Wales) is synonymized with gymnopis. Five subspecies currently recognized.
