The genus Eos extends over the Moluccas and Western Papuan Islands, but does not occur anywhere near Borneo. Possibly the bird occurred on one of the Moluccas; there are a number of islands within the range of the genus where no representative species actually occurs. Very little is known about the ecology of lories of the genus Eos. All six species in the genus are endemic to Indonesia and most have very restricted ranges. They apparently need large trees to breed successfully. Four of the species, including the Black-winged Lory E. cyanogenia, have been traded in relatively large numbers during the last decade.

Habitat loss continues apace in the south of Yamdena and this, combined with continuing trapping, may be causing it to decline.
