Long-tailed Pipit in 1996 and the Kimberley Pipit in 2002. Within the family there is an additional species, the Golden Pipit, Tmetothylacus tennelus, which belongs to a distinct, monotypic genus. This species is apparently intermediate in appearance between the pipits and the longclaws, and is probably more closely related to the longclaws. One species of pipit, the Yellow-breasted Pipit, is sometimes split out into a genus Hemimacronyx, which is considered to be intermediate between the longclaws and pipits. More

1996 the description of Long-tailed Pipit Anthus longicaudatus was published (see p.135). The distribution and movements of this new species are poorly known, although it seems to be a non-breeding winter visitor (May to early September) to the Kimberley region. Pipit field identification is notoriously subjective, and separating Long-tailed from the similar Plain-backed and Buffy Pipits is less than clear. More
