E. J. O. Hartert, 1892,
Australia, Aru Islands and probably New Ireland.
Formerly listed as E. guttatus, but this name applies to E. mystacalis, of which it is a junior synonym#R. Birds of NW Australia formerly separated as race harterti, those of Groote Eylandt as gilberti, and those of Banda Sea as insulanus, but variation appears to be limited and clinal. Monotypic.
Most of Australia, but generally absent in coastal regions from C Queensland S to SE South Australia and Tasmania. Some post-breeding movement N to Lesser Sundas and Aru Is.
