This is a species found mostly in the dry lowlands and occasionally in the wet zone. Other than in Sri Lanka it is only found in India.

The conservation status of this species is regarded as “Least Concerned” (National Red List 2012).

This is a species protected under the Fauna and Flora Protection Ordinance as amended by Act No. 22 of 2009.

I have observed this species in all the dry zone forested areas including all the national parks. They are usually found in the bathrooms and particularly in washbasins.

In Wilpattu they found throughout the park. I have photographed them at Hunuwilagama, Eluwankulama and Radagama.
