This species' range is unclear. The only confirmed locality is that of the neotype, at Thagata Juwa village on the hills south-west of Mount Mooleyit, in the Dawna Mountains, Myanmar, at 400-500m asl, collected by Fea in 1887. Maps showing the distribution of this species do not show the locality of Thagata Juwa village, but the area of Mount Mooleyit (also known as Malayit Taung) instead.
