Range Description

The species is known from Peninsular Malaysia (e.g. Orr 2005) and Yala in the extreme south of Thailand (e.g. Hmlinen and Pinratana 1999). Most records from Peninsular Malaysia are from the Cameron Highlands in Pahang, and surrounding parts of Perak; however there is a record from Templar Park near Kuala Lumpur (Lieftinck 1984), two other records from Selangor, and another from Penang Island (Kitagawa 1997), as well as a vague record from Kelantan, which could be from close to the Cameron Highlands, or could be from much further away. It is likely to be more widely distributed in Peninsular Malaysia than these records suggest; there are extensive areas of suitable hilly and mountainous habitat, but collecting appears to have been concentrated in the easily accessible Cameron Highlands area.
