Range Description:This species occurs widely in Sumatra and Kalimantan, Indonesia. In Peninsular Malaysia, it is now restricted to three localities, the Tasek Bera wetland, north Selangor Peat Swamp and Muar Peat Swamp. The Sungei Buloh population on Peninsular Malaysia has disappeared. It probably occurs more widely on Sumatra and Borneo than current records suggest, especially in areas between known sites.
