DistributionRead full entry
Range DescriptionThe species is widely distributed throughout mainland Southeast Asia from the lower Salween to the lower Mekong (below the Khone Falls in southern Lao PDR, Viet Nam and Cambodia; Roberts 1993) basins and the Malay Peninsula. It is also known in lowland Cambodia (Kottelat 1985) to freshwater parts of the Mekong delta in Viet Nam. Records from Indonesia (Sumatra, Borneo and Java; Kottelat 1985) are thought to possibly refer to another species (C. Vidthayanon pers. comm. 2012), and their identity requires confirmation.
