DistributionMyanmar = Burma (Puepoli), elevation 900–1000 m

Type locality: Puepoli, Karin Bia-po (elevation: 3200-3400 feet), Burma.  
TypesHolotype: MSNG 28503 (not in BMNH, P. Campbell, pers. comm., 7 July 2014). 
CommentDistribution: Has been erroneously (?) reported from India.

Similar species: USNM 559805, originally identified as C. feae, was re-identified as C. peguensis (G.R. Zug, cited in Grismer et al. 2017). C. feae has 32 continuous, femoropre-cloacal pores, whereas C. shwetaungorum sp. nov. has 23–28 and the SVL of C. feae is 47 mm (although it may be a juvenile) and that of C. shwetaungorum sp. nov. ranges up to 102.2 mm. The type locality of C. feae is 214 km south-west of that of C. shwetaungorum sp. nov. although their habitats may be continuous through a U-shape range of mountainous terrain. Grismer et al. 2017 hypothesize that the holotype of C. feae is a juvenile and that molecular data will place it within the linnwayensis group.
