Range Description

Irena cyanogastra is endemic to the Philippines, where it is found on Luzon, Cataduanes, Polillo, Bohol, Leyte, Samar, Dinagat, Mindanao and Basilan (Kennedy et al. 2000, del Hoyo et al. 2005). The species appears to occur at low densities in most occupied habitats (Ding Li Yong in litt. 2011, R. Hutchinson in litt. 2012). The population is thought to be in overall decline as a result of on-going forest clearance and degradation.
