Small, compact bird with decurved bill found in wet Tasmanian forests. Brown above, pale below, with gray face, olive wash on flanks, and small white wingbar. Narrow eyering imparts a spectacled appearance. Feeds much like a treecreeper, by hitching its way along tree trunks and branches. Compare Tasmanian Scrubwren, which is browner, larger, and has a strong supercilium. A Tasmanian endemic species.
