The species is found in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Brunei. It inhabits the understorey of mature lowland forests, although it has also been found in logged forests and in montane areas up to an elevation of 1, 600 m.
The species is very vulnerable to deforestation due to its need for relatively undisturbed primary forest.
