DistributionSingapore Island, Thailand, Vietnam,
India (Andaman Islands)
Indonesia (Simalur, Billiton, Borneo, Sulawesi, Bangka, Belitung, Java, Kalimantan, Mentawai Archipelago, Nias, Riau Archipelago, Simeuleue, Sumatra, We);
Brunei Darussalam;
Malaysia (Malaya and East Malaysia, Pulau Tioman [HR 34: 388]);
Myanmar (Burma)

Type locality: Java and Sumatra (Schlegel, 1837) Map legend:
TDWG region - Region according to the TDWG standard, not a precise distribution map.

TypesSyntypes: RMNH (Reinwardt) (2),  
CommentSimilar to E. erythrura. Synonyms after DAVID & VOGEL 1996. Has been reported from the Nicobar Islands but is not listed by DAS 1999 for the Nicobar Islands. The report from Pulau Tioman remains unconfirmed (fide HIEN et al. 2001).

Coluber melanurus var. timoriensis FERREIRA 1897 could be Coelognathus subradiata or C. flavolineatus. Unfortunately the specimens used by Ferreira are not available anymore, so the question will remain unsolved (H. Kaiser, pers. comm.).
