Range Description

The species has been reported from Indonesia, southern China (G. Reels and K. Wilson collected a male specimen in 2002 at Henglongbei, Shikengkong (Babaoshan), northern Guangdong; K.D.P. Wilson pers. comm. 2011), Chiang Rai in northern Thailand (individual males collected in 2003 and 2004; Katatani et al. 2004), Peninsular Malaysia, e.g. in Selangor (Ris 1913), Borneo with records from Mt. Marapok in Sabah, near the Sarawak border (Ris 1913) and a female from Brunei Darussalam (Tasek Merimbun in the 1990's; Orr 2001). However, although the species was described from a female, records based on females should be treated with some caution, as the females of C. gigantea and C. harterti are less dissimilar than the males and the limits of their variation are not understood. Only the confirmed records from southern China and from northern Thailand are at all recent. The species was described from Sumatra (a female collected from Batu Sankahan (550 m), Deliserdang District, Sumatra; Karsch 1889).

From the published information the species is likely to have a more extensive distribution in Borneo (Malaysia: Sarawak; Indonesia: Kalimantan) and should be looked for in Myanmar, Viet Nam and Lao PDR as well.
