Jardine and Selby, 1830,
Northern Territory, Australia.
Closely related to G. scripta. Races differ strikingly in colour of orbital skin (red in smithii, yellow in blaauwi), although colour variation thought possibly a result of dietary differences#R; said to differ also in amount of white in supercilium (extending only to front of eye in blaauwi, although black line below it continues as in nominate), and bicoloured supercilium formed by separate rows of black feathers and white feathers in blaauwi, whereas in smithii formed by one row of half-white and half-black feathers#R; races sometimes treated as colour morphs, with species therefore monotypic#R. Two subspecies tentatively recognized.
