New Holland; error = Timor.
Until very recently (see synchronous independent analysis#R) treated as a large polytypic species, but variation in Wallacea pronounced, leading to earlier recognition of R. diluta and R. fuscorufa; in addition to plumage differences, new acoustic evidence now extends the basis for many further separations, hence the split here of R. tenkatei, R. hoedti, R. bouruensis, R. obiensis, R. cinerea, R. assimilis, R. kordensis and R. isura. Present species differs from highly polytypic R. isura in its white breast, with grey breast sides marked with large vague white spots (3); tan vs pale tan belly (1); larger white tips on outer rectrices (1); fairly (to highly) divergent song (score for least divergent song: 3)#R. Two subspecies recognized.
