(Longmore & Boles, 1983)
This species is found only in a small area of plateau rainforest in the Clarke Range, west of Mackay, in Queensland. Occasionally, this species can be seen foraging on the rainforest margin and adjacent open forest.
The birds at Eungella were long considered to be an outlying population of the bridled honeyeater (Bolemoreus frenatus, formerly Lichenostomus frenatus), but they were described as a separate species in 1983. The story of its discovery is documented here.
The Eungella honeyeater was previously placed in the genus Lichenostomus, but was moved to Bolemoreus after a molecular phylogenetic analysis, published in 2011, showed that the original genus was polyphyletic.
