Range.

It is unfortunate that a single specimen, and no other, has not been fixed as the type. The author of this species sins, in this respect, in very good company, but absence of definiteness of a type leads to the confusion we all desire to avoid.

Mr. Baker quotes the following localities:—Girilambone, Cobar, and Trangie (W. Baeuerlen); Nyngan and Murga (R. H. Cambage). (Original description.) These are all in western New South Wales.

It will be observed that no type locality is mentioned, neither is it stated, in the explanation of Plate XLIII, figuring E. Woollsiana (original description) where the specimens figured came from. I have received, in response to my request for types, specimens labelled by Mr. Baker, Condobolin and Girilambone to Condobolin.
