Geographical range. Borneo, N.E. Himalaya, Taiwan, Burma, Thailand, Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Palawan (ZMUC).

Habitat preference. The type specimen was collected by A.R. Wallace in Sarawak, probably in the lowlands. A second specimen was taken in recent surveys at 1618m on Bukit Retak in Brunei.
