Lenhart et al. (2013) - The male coloration difference is the basis for the designation of the subspecies D. australis bucki and D. a. nigricolor. These may be separate species or the product of intra-specific variation, but this cannot be diagnosed here as the types designated by Borgmeier (1937) were not available to us and the extent of intra-specific variation could not be determined from the limited sample size available.
