Taxonomically Alan. To my knowledge, the Plains Wanderer isn't closely grouped with a number of other species. While there are more than one species of cassowary, I believe there is only one species of Emu.

By, "Perhaps a species that fits in a class of its own, such as the Plains Wanderer might be a suitable candidate for having an indigenous name," do mean one that the rest of us use? Very few birds would not have an indigenous name.
