DistributionPhilippines (Batan, Luzon, Mindoro, Polillo)

Type locality: see comment; restricted to “Luzon” by LEVITON 1965: 126.  
Reproductionoviparous. 
TypesSyntypes: MNHN 848 und 1320 
CommentSynonymy: mostly after LEVITON 1965. Boulenger (1893: 368) placed Lycodon muelleri Dumeril et al. in the synonymy of Stegonotus dumerili. Boulenger probably proposed this latter name as a substitute for L. muelleri which, in the genus Stegonotus, was preoccupled by a senior homonym.

Photo in Siler et al. 2011.

Distribution: the original type locality, “Java” is clearly in error; 
Etymologynamed after Johannes Peter Müller (1801-1858), German biologist and anatomist.
