The species occurs in Kinabalu National Park, which is well protected.
There is a particular need to expand the existing protected area network (especially above 1,200 m asl) south of Kinabalu National Park.
Additional surveys are needed to determine whether the species occurs at other sites within Kinabalu National Park.
Location InformationThis species is endemic to a portion of montane north-western Sabah, Malaysia in northern Borneo. A large subpopulation occurs in the vicinity of Mesilau in Kinabalu National Park between 1,600 and 2,000 m asl. It is possible that the species occurs more widely within the park, but there are no records yet (P. Yambun pers. comm. January 2018). There are reports of another small subpopulation on Mount Trus Madi at 1,300 m asl, however additional surveys are needed to confirm this. Attempts to locate the species on Gunung Mulu in Sarawak have not been successful.
