Range Description

This species is found in China: southwest Sichuan and northwest Yunnan, in the deep gorges of the Jinsha (Yangtse), Langcang (Mekong) and Nu (Salween) Rivers, also along some western tributaries of the Yalong River in south Sichuan. Its extent upstream into Xizang (Tibet) is not known. It apparently has established itself successfully in the Western Hills south of Kunming and probably elsewhere in the dry hills of central Yunnan, but that is well outside its natural range.
