Range DescriptionPalmeria dolei occurs on Maui in the Hawaiian Islands (USA) and is extinct on Moloka`i (last confirmed observations in 1907). On Maui, it remains moderately common within 58 km2 on the north-eastern slopes of Haleakala, with a population estimated at c. 3,800 birds in 1980 (Scott et al. 1986). Surveys in the 1990s to 1997 indicate stability, although areas outside protected areas were not necessarily covered (Jacobi and Atkinson 1995, Berlin and VanGelder 1999).
