This species is known only from Mount Fan Si Pan, in northern Viet Nam, from 1,600-2,100m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It was recorded from lower and upper montane evergreen forest, and was also observed breeding around a buffalo wallow in heavily degraded forest.
It is reportedly common during breeding, although it has only been recorded once since it was first described over sixty years ago.
The main threats to this species are presumably encroachment of agriculture, and forest clearance through subsistence collection of wood.
Its one known location is within Hoang Lien Son National Park.
