This area is the location where Flores Scopsowl Ottus alfredi specimen collected (Hartert 1897a), and follow up survey in this area couldn't found that species (Butcart et.al.1996, Trainor & Lesmana 2000). Follow-up survey is needed to establish the status of Flores Scopsowl, especially in coastal areas.
