Superficially similar to, but much longer-tailed than, Night Parrot.
Two subspecies are commonly recognized (wallicus and flaviventris) with some authorities additionally recognizing leachi.
A recent paper finds that the two subspecies have been separated for a very long time and proposes to recognize P. flaviventris as a full species, Western Ground Parrot.
Coastal heath and swampland and nearby grasslands.
Feeding on ground, most likely to fly (unless flushed) at dawn and dusk.
