Buru, south Moluccas.
Until recently considered conspecific with T. affinis, but separated on a range of characters from this and closely related T. longirostris#R, differing from T. affinis in its slightly smaller size (effect size for bill length −1.99; score 1); presence of partial yellow eyering (2); olive-green vs yellow belly to vent (3); olive-green vs broad yellow edges and tips of tail (3); and no yellow tips on uppertail-coverts (ns). From the newly defined T. longirostris in its olive-green vs yellow belly to vent (3); considerably smaller size and notably shorter tail (effect size –3.62; 2); half-wedge yellow vs olive-green lores (2); partial yellow eyering (ns); dark olive-grey vs bright yellow-fringed rectrices (3); and narrow whitish vs narrow yellow inner fringes on tertials (ns). From T. lucasi (by extension T. chloris), T. aurea and T. platenae in characters given under those species. Recent published descriptions of song and calls also indicate vocal differences#R. Monotypic.
