Range Description

Malay Weasel is confined to three large land-masses of Sundaic Southeast Asia: the Thai-Malay peninsula, and the islands of Sumatra and Borneo; in all three, it iswidespread(Duckworth et al. 2006). Confusion about the existence of this species on Javastems froman error in the original description, which is occasionally still repeated today, e.g. by Wilson and Reeder (2005), where the holotype was said to come from Java (Duckworth et al. 2006). The northernmost record is from Thailand at 10N (Chutiponget al. 2014). This species is altitudinally wide-ranging, with records fromsea-levelup to 1,700 m asl, including many records up to 1,400 m asl (Duckworth et al. 2006, Ross et al. 2013).
