How about Obscure Occidental Melithreptus?

Slater used the bland Western Honeyeater.  An American website that keeps track 
of taxonomic changes suggested Swan River Honeyeater.  I am not sure if they 
made that up themselves.

Actually I think I was wrong when I said it would be M. whitlocki.  I think it 
will in fact be M. chloropsis.
