north-western Australia (erroneously “corrected” to north-western New South Wales).
Until very recently considered conspecific with C. castaneothorax, but molecular evidence suggests that it is closer to C. alisteri and C. cinnamomeum#R, and (although voice very similar) differs in its shorter wing (on published data#R for males effect size −1.25, score 1); longer tail (effect size 1.39, score 1); grey-brown confined to crown, not covering mantle (2); upperparts bright rufous vs dull rufous (2); breastband in male mid-rufous, narrow and white-margined vs deep rufous, broader and with no white above or below (2); black lower breast patch in male broader (ns); and wing-coverts in both sexes tipped coarsely vs finely white (ns); further differences exist between females. See also C. castanotum. Monotypic.
C Western Australia, marginally to SW Northern Territory and extreme W South Australia.
