Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.
Previously placed in Neositta#R. Commonly treated as conspecific with D. papuensis (which see). Races in past treated as five separate species, but each hybridizes and backcrosses with adjacent races. Described form albata, known only from 19th-century specimens from E Queensland, is considered an intergrade. Other proposed races are rothschildi (NE Queensland S to Cairns), magnirostris (Inkerman area of CE Queensland) and lathami (E Victoria), all included in nominate; and lumholtzi (Rockhampton area of CE Queensland) included in leucocephala. Five subspecies recognized.
