Range Description

This very widespread Asian species, ranges from northeastern South Asia (Bhutan, India and Nepal [Molur et al. 2005]; probably present in Bangladesh), much of central, southern and eastern China (including the island of Hainan) (Smith and Xie 2008), ranging into Southeast Asia, where it has been recorded from Myanmar, Thailand, Lao PDR, Viet Nam and probably occurs more widely. It has been introduced to Benguet Province, Luzon in the Philippines; Palau; central Sulawesi (Indonesia); Seram (Indonesia); and the Vogelkop Peninsula of Papua Province (Indonesia) (Corbet and Hill 1992; Flannery 1995; Musser and Carleton 2005). In South Asia the species occurs from 686 to 2,740 m asl (Molur et al. 2005). It is presumably found as low as sea level in parts of its range.
