Range Description

Graminicola bengalensis is known from the terai of northern India (highly localised but common at a few sites from Uttar Pradesh eastwards to the Brahmaputra lowlands), southern Nepal (c.2,000 pairs), Bangladesh (rare and highly local in the north), mainland China (rare resident in Guangxi, north Guangdong and Hainan), Hong Kong (China), Myanmar (formerly resident in Tenasserim, current status unknown), Thailand (former resident in the central region, last record in 1923, probably extinct) and Vietnam, where it was a former resident in east Tonkin (P. Leader in litt. 2007). Although still common at a few sites, including Chitwan National Park, Nepal, it has apparently disappeared from many previous localities although it is easily overlooked when not singing and maybe under-recorded in much of its range (Sagar Baral et al. 2006).
