Range Description

Paroreomyza flammea was endemic to Moloka'i, Hawaii, USA (Stattersfield et al. 1998). It was common in 1907, but declined rapidly afterwards and was rare by the 1930s (Gorresen et al. 2009). The last record was in the Kamako'u Preserve in 1961-1963 (Collar et al. 1994). Surveys from 1979 onwards have failed to locate the species (Gorresen et al. 2009).
