Range Description

This species is known from Peninsular Malaysia, Penang island, Sumatra and Borneo (Medway 1983). The "typical form" of this species occurs in southernmost provinces of Thailand. Reports from northern Thailand in Lekagul and MacNeely (1977) have not been confirmed, nor have those in Tizard et al. (1997) from northern Lao PDR. However, flying squirrels in these areas remain very poorly known so it is unclear whether these dark animals are melanistic Petaurista sp. or Aeromys tephromelas.
