Range Description

This species is endemic to Sri Lanka, where it is confined to the wet zone in the south-west of the island, with a few records from the intermediate zone. Although it remains locally common and survives in many forest blocks it probably has a declining, increasingly fragmented population of several tens of thousands of individuals.
