We have recently needed to update NatureMapr taxonomy to split this species into subspecies which has automatically updated this to the potentially wrong subspecies. @Liam.m @rawshorty would you consider this sighting to be Melanodryas cucullata picata?

The location looks like on the boarder for both, maybe flip a coin?

I think they're probably fine for picata, and I'd say we could probably treat any north of Gundabooka/Bourke region as such.
