The spotted pardalote is one of the smallest of all Australian birds at 8 to 10 cm in length, and one of the most colourful; it is sometimes known as the diamondbird. Although moderately common in all of the reasonably fertile parts of Australia it is seldom seen closely enough to enable identification. A distinctive subspecies, the ''yellow-rumped pardalote'' , is found in drier inland regions of southern Australia, particularly in semi-arid Mallee woodlands.
