Range Description

Risiocnemis seidenschwarzi is a Philippine endemic species, confined to Cebu Island. Previously the species was known only from a small section of a woody stream in Tabunan Forest, central Cebu, but that population may now be extinct. However, another population has been identified in the southern part of Cebu island (Kawasan River), on a very small rivulet beside Kawasan River, in a maximum area of 30x30 m on this 12 km river (R.J.T. Villanueva pers. comm. 2009). Searches of other areas on the island have not revealed this species, despite the presence of suitable habitat (R.J.T. Villanueva pers. comm. 2009).
