Range Description

This species is widely distributed in Asia from India across southern China to Viet Nam, southward to the Philippines and as far east as Ternate, Indonesia (David and Vogel 1996).

Two of the subspecies are endemic to the Philippines: A. p. preocularis (Taylor 1922) from Panay, Luzon, Dinagat, Siargao, Basilan, Batan, Bohol, Camiguin, Cebu, Leyte, Mindanao, Negros, Polillo, (Leviton 1968), Sibuyan (M. Gaulke pers. comm. 2008), and probably many other Philippine Islands, and A. p. suluensis Gaulke 1994 from Jolo, Siasi, Sangasanga, Tawitawi, Bongao and Sibutu (Gaulke 1995). The nominate form occurs throughout most of the remainder of the range, and A. p. medioxima Lazell 2002 is found only in China.
