Range Description

Treron floris is endemic to Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia, where it is known from the islands of Lombok, Sumbawa, Flores, Besar, Solor, Lembata, Pantar and Alor, and may also occur on some other Flores Sea islands (BirdLife International 2001). It has been reported from Komodo where high elevation forest may support a small population (C. Trainor in litt. 2007). Recent records derive from Sumbawa, where it is rare and local, Flores, where it is generally uncommon but locally numerous around fruiting trees, particularly in the centre where flocks in the tens have been seen quite regularly, Lembata, where it was recorded in small numbers (2-10 birds) in 2000 and 2009 (C. Trainor in litt. 2002, 2012), Alor, where flocks of 30-50 have been observed and it may be locally common (C. Trainor in litt. 2002) and Pantar (F. verbelen in litt. 2012).
