Range Description

The species is recorded from south to southwest India occurring in Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka and Maharashtra (Fraser 1931, Laidlaw 1922, Prasad 1996). Babu and Nandy (2010) list Chandigarh, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Uttar Pradesh, Western Ghats and Nepal as further record sites, but without quoting the origin of the data. Therefore these records are not listed in the occurrence table. A record of a female from West Bengal (Laidlaw 1922) was considered to be misidentified by Fraser, but the record appears to have mistakenly persisted in the literature (e.g. in Prasad and Varshney 1995).
