Range Description

This species occurs in southeastern China from the Yangtse River southward. It is also found on Taiwan, with minor range in northeast Viet Nam (Hoffmann and Smith 2005). There are a few records of hares west of the range of this species and it is not known if they belong to Lepus sinensis or L. peguensis (Duckworth pers. comm.). L. sinensis can be found occupying bamboo at elevations up to 4,000-5,000 m (Smith and Xie 2008).
