San Jorge Island (off south Santa Isabel), Solomon Islands.
Previously included in P. pectoralis (see that species); separable from others in the complex by a combination of large size and (in male) black chin (not in christophori), relatively small area of yellow on throat, usually broad breastband, and (in female) pale bill. Some authors#R include P. feminina as a race. Form whitneyi, formerly treated as a race of P. melanura, is now considered a hybrid between that species and race bougainvillei of present species#R. Nine subspecies recognized.
