The Eungella Honeyeater (pronounced ‘yungella’), Lichenostomus hindwoodi, is a species endemic to Australia. The first specimen was discovered in 1975, though it was incorrectly identified. It wasn’t until 1983 that these birds were described and listed as their own species. It has a very small range in a plateau rainforest in Queensland’s Clarke Range, and although sightings are unusual it is believed to be a quite common species in this area.
