Range Description

Ochotona forresti ranges from northwest Yunnan, southeast Tibet (China) to northern Myanmar, to Assam, and Sikkim (India) and Bhutan (Hoffmann and Smith 2005). The mapped range in Myanmar is totally speculative (Duckworth and Thaw pers. comm.). The distribution information in South Asia is not understood as there is taxonomic confusion (S. Molur pers. comm.) O. forresti occupies elevations of 2,600-4,400 m (Feng et al. 1986).
