Halmahera, north Moluccas.
Until recently considered conspecific with T. longirostris, but this was split into five species#R (now six), present species differing from its geographically and morphologically closest relative, T. lucasi, in its olive-green vs yellow lores (3); olive-green vs olive-yellow ear-coverts (1); blackish base to submoustachial area vs all olive-green (2); and slightly smaller size and distinctly shorter wing (effect size −2.28) (2); voice apparently also distinctive#R. Monotypic.
Morotai, Halmahera and Bacan (N Moluccas).
