Broad-tailed Thornbill

Acanthiza apicalis Gould, J 1847

The inland thornbill, also called the broad-tailed thornbill, is a small, insect-eating bird of Australia. The inland thornbill is commonly confused with the coastal brown thornbill due to its similar colorations. The inland thornbill encompasses four subspecies: Source: Wikipedia

  • Acanthiza apicalis albiventris
  • Acanthiza apicalis apicalis, the nominate subsp.
  • Acanthiza apicalis cinerascens
  • Acanthiza apicalis whitlocki, originally described as a species of Acanthiza by A. J. North, who was requested to honour the collector of its specimens, F. Lawson Whitlock, by the sponsor of the expedition, H. L. White.
