Remarks: Records from Sula Islands, Indonesia, (e.g., Kopstein 1927) are regarded as erroneous (Seufer, Kaverkin & Kirschner [eds.] 2005). Seufer, Kaverkin & Kirschner (eds.) (2005) stated that the species has been found i Vietnam (by N. Orlov), but this was not confirmed by Nguyen, Ho & Nguyen (2009). According to Wermuth (1965) it also occurs in Sumatra, but no support for this claim has been found.
Distribution: Indonesia (Kalimantan), Malaysia (Sabah, Sarawak, West Malaysia), Singapore, Thailand.
