1 For reasons to treat this group as close to the acanthizids, see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524]. Treatment here based on that work and Christidis & Boles (1994, 2008) [Christidis, 1994 #757], [Christidis, 2008 #11602]. See also Gardner et al. (2010) [Gardner, 2010 #12103] for the sequence of genera.
2 For polytypic treatment see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
3 While spelled xanthopygus in the Annals and Magazine of Natural History the earlier newspaper account used the spelling xanthopyge.
4 For dismissal of rex see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
5 Implicitly includes parryi; see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
6 Intergradient carpentariae not recognised by Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524], but zone mapped.
7 The populations treated by Salomonsen (1967) [Salomonsen, 1967 #3454] as species (P. striatus, P. ornatus, P. substriatus and P. melanocephalus) were united by Schodde (1975) [Schodde, 1975 #3503]; followed by subsequent authors.
8 Implicitly includes restrictus; see Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
9 Implicitly includes barroni and bowensis; see map in Schodde & Mason (1999) [Schodde, 1999 #3524].
