Vigors and Horsfield, 1827,
Derwent River district, south-east Tasmania, Australia.
Close to C. montanellus and C. campestris. All three often treated as conspecific, with plumage differences largely clinal, and vocalizations very similar, while preliminary DNA work suggests insignificant genetic differences between montanellus and other fieldwrens in Western Australia; however, lines of parapatry exist between present species and campestris and between latter and montanellus, and some vocal differences apparent; further study required before taxonomic revision appropriate. Four subspecies recognized.
