Yudnamutana, northern Flinders Ranges, South Australia.
Detailed study#R places this species in its own subgenus Cryptamytis. Until recently considered conspecific with A. striatus, but falls outside range of intraspecific variation found in that species, and they may be sympatric in Gawler Ranges; separation at species level further supported by DNA evidence. Race pedleri recently described, based on small but consistent differences in morphology and plumage, backed up by DNA#R. Two subspecies recognized.
