DistributionRead full entry
Range DescriptionThis species ranges from Myanmar to China in the east, and south to northern Peninsular Malaysia, occurring in Thailand, Cambodia, Lao PDR and Viet Nam. An apparently disjunct population exists in far northern Myanmar, and surveys between this and the snake's main distribution range in this country have failed to record it (G. Wogan pers. comm. August 2011). In China it occurs in Guangdong and Guangxi Provinces, as well as the islands of Hainan and Hong Kong. It has been recorded between 100 and 1,400 m asl.
