Range Description

Hypothymis helenae is endemic to the Philippines where it is distributed widely but patchily, on Camiguin Norte (race personata), Luzon, Polillo, Catanduanes and Samar (nominate helenae), Dinagat, Siargao and Mindanao (race agusanae) (Collar et al. 1999). It is generally rare, with very few records on Luzon and Mindanao. Reportedly common historically on Camiguin Norte and Dinagat, although a repeat visit to the latter in 1994 failed to confirm this. It is reported to be common on Samar and may be locally so on Luzon.
