Range Description

The species is found adjoining the Palghat gap of the Western Ghats at an altitude ranging between 500 and 1,000 m. One report of the spider is from Trivandrum although the location is not known, and there are reports from Kannur and Calicut districts although the identity needs to be validated. The extent of occurrence from confirmed locations north and south of the Palghat gap is about 12,000 km, with an estimated area of occupancy of less than 2,000 km calculated from remaining relatively undisturbed forests. The spider is found in fewer than 10 locations, severely fragmented.
