Range Description

This species is known only from the islands of Rintja, Padar, Lomblen and Pantar in the Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia (Musser and Carleton 2005). It probably occurs on other islands in the Lesser Sunda chain (e.g. Komodo) (Musser and Carleton 2005; K. Aplin pers. comm.). It is represented only by subfossil material from Flores, recovered from sediments 4000-3000 years old (Musser 1981).
