Range DescriptionThis species is endemic to the Philippines, where it is known with certainty only from Ilin island. Unverified reports suggest its presence on southern Mindoro (Oliver et al. 1993). The holotype is a taxidermy mount purchased on Ilin island, but the true provenance of the specimen is unknown (L. Heaney pers. comm.). However, surveys with local people have failed to reveal knowledge of the species. The specimen was "found" in the collection at the Smithsonian Museum decades after being donated (Musser and Gordon 1981).
