Range DescriptionThis species has been recorded disjunctly in northeastern India (Darjeeling and Assam) and in Myanmar (Smith 1943, Wogan et al. 2008). It may also occur in Bangladesh. The snake's presence in India is doubtful, and recent surveys in the area have not recorded it (Chettri and Bhupathy 2007). The snake's occurrence in Myanmar's Rakhine state is uncertain as it is based from an old record and has not been confirmed in recent surveys (Theobald 1882, G. Wogan pers. comm. 2011).
