Range Description

Lepus hainanus is endemic to the island of Hainan, China (Flux and Angermann 1990). Formerly, L. hainanus occupied most of the lowlands of Hainan Dao, except possibly in the northeast. In 1995 it was located only at Bang Xi and Da Tien deer ranches in the central west coastal zone. Historic locations of L. hainanus specimens were found from sea-level and approximately 300 m (Lazell et al. 1995).
