Range Description

Until recently, specimen-based records of this species were only known from Quang Binh Province, central Viet Nam (Tillack et al. 2004). There are at least three additional records from Kom Tum Province to the south, from sites between 500 and 1,500 m asl. (Ziegler et al. 2010). This snake may occur throughout the area of intact karst limestone of central and north-central Viet Nam and adjacent Lao PDR (R. Bain pers. comm.), and may also extend into remaining forested areas of northeastern Cambodia (T. Neang pers. comm. 2011); however until this can be confirmed the extent of occurrence is here treated as the combined area of known localities, an area of approximately 3,385 km.
