Abstract

For many years past I have known that the specimens of Psophodes collected by Messrs. Cairn & Grant in 1887 and 1889 at Boar Pocket, North-eastern Queensland, were different in several respects from the P. crepitans, inhabiting New South Wales and Victoria. While lately examining the Reference Collection I found another skin from the same locality, which was obtained by Mr. W. S. Day on the 4th of May, 1891. As all the specimens collected at Boar Pocket at wide intervals are alike, I take the present opportunity of pointing out the distinctive characters of this northern race of Psophodes crepitans.
