Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.
Considered conspecific with L. sueurii by some authors#R, and indeed differs only in its lack of a white supercilium in male (but not all male sueurii show this feature well or seemingly at all; 2); more blue than green gloss to black parts of plumage (possibly 1); generally a slightly more barred breast in female (1); hence further study, perhaps focusing on vocalizations, needed to justify present arrangement. Monotypic.
