Range Description

This recently described species is currently known only from the Sinharaja World Heritage Site, Sri Lanka (Meegaskumbura et al. 2007). It has been recorded at two sites in Sinharaja Forest, at Kudawa (460 m asl) and Morningside (1,040 m asl) (Meegaskumbura et al. 2007). Sampling efforts at ten other sites in Sri Lanka have not located any additional populations, and it seems possible that this species is restricted to Sinharaja Forest with an available range of 110 km; although it is still considered possible that it might be present in other nearby forested areas (Meegaskumbura et al. 2007).
