As John Tongue replied, it was split from the Chestnut-breasted Quail-thrush (note that Chestnut QT is now called Chestnut-backed QT).

It is found over a reasonably large area, but the stronghold for them is from Mt Magnet north past Meekatharra along the Great Northern Highway. I used to find them quite easily around Cue, but recently while I have found them it has taken quite a while. Recent good areas to see the bird have been just west of Mt Magnet on the road towards Yalgoo. In the first 7kms. They have also been seen on Kirkalocka Station where there is station stay accommodation.
