This species is known from the Hawaiian island of Lana'i, USA, but is now Extinct, probably as a result of habitat destruction and introduced diseases. The last records date from 1961-1963, and a survey in 1979 failed to find the species.
Paroreomyza flammea was endemic to Moloka'i, Hawaii, USA (Stattersfield et al. 1998). It was common in 1907, but declined rapidly afterwards and was rare by the 1930s (Gorresen et al. 2009). The last record was in the Kamako'u Preserve in 1961-1963 (Collar et al. 1994). Surveys from 1979 onwards have failed to locate the species (Gorresen et al. 2009).
