The species is known from Lao PDR from the Nam Kading drainage northwards into Xishauangbanna, southern China; in Chiang Rai, northern Thailand and is likely to be in the Mekong drainage in Myanmar (Kottelat 1998, 2001). Found in the mainstream and in tributaries (e.g., throughout the Nam Theun in Lao PDR). Kang et al. (2009) recorded the species in the Upper Mekong as far upstream as the Luoza River.
