CommentDistribution: Reports from Hongkong most likely refer to P. chinensis (fide OTA 1997, VOGEL 2010). Not in Hong Kong fide Francis 2021.

Synonymy after VOGEL 2010 who considered Pareas tonkinensis as a synonym, but Zaher et al. 2019 found significant genetic differences between hamptoni and tonkinensis.

Behavior: nocturnal.

Habitat: partly arboreal (Harrington et al. 2018). 
EtymologyNamed after Herbert Hampton, a friend of G.A. Boulenger, who inferred in his description that the holotypes of the snake was collected by Hampton.
