Keen tickers & taxonomists may be interested in a recent paper by Les 
Christidis in the Australian Journal of Zoology. 
In the paper "Evolution and biogeography of the Australian grasswrens, 
Amytornis (Aves: Maluridae): biochemical perspectives" he proposes that A. 
striatus striatus and A. s. merrotsyi be treated as separate species elevating 
the latter to A. merrotsyi (a restricted population found in the Flinders 
Ranges). He recommends this on the basis of genetic distance. He did not 
examine the other race A. s. whitei.
The reference is Australian Journal of Zoology, Volume 47 Number 2, 1999.
