Red Lory (Eos bornea) - HBW 4, p. 342
French: Lori écarlate
Spanish: Lori Rojo
Other common names: Moluccan/Moluccan Red(!)/Buru Lory
Taxonomy: Psittacus borneus Linnaeus, 1758, Borneo, India; error = Ambon.
All six Eos species comprise a superspecies. Various populations have been awarded separate races, on basis of purported size differences; however variability within these populations, or evidence of clines, suggests size cannot be used as a subspecific character. “E. goodfellowi” seems likely to represent immature of present species introduced to Obi. Proposed races bernsteini and rothschildi invalid, as variation is clinal. Two subspecies recognized.
Subspecies and Distribution:
- cyanothorus (Vieillot, 1818) - Buru.
- bornea (Linnaeus, 1758) - Ambon, Haruku, Saparua, Seram Laut, Watubela, Tayandu and Kai Is.
