The Thick-billed Grasswren (Amytornis textilis modestus) was once a widespread species in arid Australia and occurred across much of western New South Wales. The species has undergone a dramatic contraction of range since European settlement and is now only considered locally common in the Lake Eyre and Lake Frome basins in South Australia (Garnett & Crowley 2000). The last confirmed record of the species in New South Wales was in 1956 (McAllan 2000).
