Range Description

This natural distribution of this species is restricted four islands (Lantau, Lamma, Chek Lap Kok and Po Toi) in Hong Kong. As mitigation of the effects of airport construction on Chek Lap Kok, the Chek Lap Kok population was translocated to suitable sites on Hong Kong Island and the New Territories (including Tsiu Hang Special Area, Tai Lam Country Park and Tai Po Kau Nature Reserve). It occurs from sea level to 650m asl.
