Myzomela [obscura, simplex, rubrotincta or rubrobrunnea] (= Myzomela obscura) Gould, J 1843

The dusky myzomela or dusky honeyeater is a small, brown bird that is a common resident of the Aru Islands, southern New Guinea and northern and eastern Australia, where there are two separated populations, one in the Top End, another from Cape York Peninsula along the east coast as far south as the New South Wales border, though the species is rare south of Rockhampton. The Moluccan myzomela, red-tinged myzomela, and Biak myzomela were formerly considered conspecific, but was split as distinct species by the IOC in 2021. Source: Wikipedia
