Range DescriptionThis species is widely distributed from Kanyakumari in southern India to the foot of the Himalayas in Nepal, although it has not been reported east of the Ganga in eastern India (Daniel 2002). It also occurs in Sri Lanka. Schleich and Kästle (2002) do not include this species in their list of reptiles from Nepal, noting that it is "only known from India". R. Vyas (pers. comm.), however, suggests that the species occurs in Pakistan, although in Nepal its presence can at best be described as uncertain.
