In Thailand, it was found in the eastern Provinces of Chonburi, Chanthaburi, Trat, Rayong as well as in the southern provinces of Ranong, Trang and Nakhon Si Thammarat (Brandt 1974).

Brown (1971) recorded the species from a mangrove swamp in South Africa, and it appears that the species' full distribution requires further investigation.
