It is unclear at this time what the actual distribution of this species is. It is mostly distributed in India and is likely to be restricted to the southern part of the country. In the past, however, similar species have been misidentified as belonging to this species (Pope and Pope 1933), and while it has been reported from diverse areas such as southern China and Pakistan, these reports are likely to be erroneous. M.S. Khan (pers. comm.) specifically states that this species does not occur in Pakistan.
