As Philip Veerman notes, there are two meanings for "endemic",
   the Scientific, meaning naturally restricted to an area, ie "true"
Australian endemics only occur naturally in Australia, eg Golden-shouldered
Parrot, restricted to Cape York.
  the Birdwatchers,which includes those naturally occurring in that area but
other areas as well, eg Red-cheeked Parrot,  naturally occurring in Cape
York but also in New Guinea.
