Species number (TNS): 489. Fore wing length: 21–33 mm. Distribution and seasonality: Central New South Wales from western Sydney north west to near Bathurst and north to the Capertee Valley. Notable localities: Clandulla State Forest, Silverdale. Habitat: Populations are local and occur in open forest, usually on poor soil. Calling song and behaviour: A ticking song produced whilst in flight and also when perched on a tree. The song lacks the complexity and long buzzing phrase of the Varied Ambertail. When stationary the series of ticks sometimes end with a short, soft chirp. Adults have been observed in Broad-leaved Red Ironbark (Eucalyptus fibrosa). Similar species: Varied Ambertail, North Coast Ambertail. database record
