The striated grasswren (Amytornis striatus) is a small, cryptically coloured ground-dwelling species of wren-like bird in theMaluridae family, endemic to Australia. It occupies a large discontinuous range across arid and semi-arid areas of western, central and southern Australia where it is associated with spinifex (Triodia) grass. This species is currently recognised as having three subspecies, and is the subject of ongoing studies that may lead to it being split into four or more different species. source
