My memory might be failing me, but I think I recall Walter telling me that the Eungella Honeyeater was a "split" (still a "discovery" in my view).

Technically the answer is probably yes - a split. But my recollection is that the animal was just comprehensively overlooked by most, and presumed to be a local variant of the Bridled.

Grey Grasswren is probably the most recent truly 'new' species found in Australia ...
