Hi Murray,

Richard and Damien Baxter are currently heading for Grasswren country across 
northern Australia and asked what I knew about 'oweni' one of the four new 
species mentioned in your message. The first mentioned 'modestus' is clearly a 
split from Thick-billed Grasswren and 'rowleyi' and 'whitei' splits from 
Striated Grasswren. Because 'oweni' is placed between the latter two I assume 
it is also a split from that species but split from which ultrataxa and where 
does it occur? I cannot find a mention of 'oweni' in Schodde & Mason's DAB nor 
in HANZAB.
