Author John Gerrard Keulemans (1842–1912)

The red-and-blue lory (Eos histrio) is a small, strikingly-colored parrot endemic to Indonesia. The species inhabits a single island, Karakelang, in the Indonesian archipelago. The red-and-blue lory is now confined to the Talaud Islands off northern Sulawesi, Indonesia, where almost all individuals appear to inhabit a single island (Karakelang). Further populations, some apparently introduced, disappeared during the 20th century from Sangihe, Siau and Tagulandang. The population is thought to be in rapid decline. Order: Psittaciformes, Superfamily: Psittacoidea, Family: Psittaculidae, Subfamily: Loriinae, Tribe: Loriini, Genus: Eos, Species: Eos histrio (P.L.S. Müller, 1776)
