You can call me Mono - it's a pleasure to meet you. Here you'll find updates from a Master of Science (Zoology) student at Melbourne University, Australia. This is a mismatch of a place; expect updates from within Uni and from out of it. I post about both zoology and its domestic cousin, animal science, and mix photos and pictures with lengthy discussions.
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.
