Mt St Thomas, Luzon, Philippines; 6/75 male same data female

   Restricted to northern Luzon island in the Philippines, in the Cordillera Central. Not rare where found, but like most Philippine endemics, is under intense pressures due to environmental destruction and human population growth. It may be headed for extinction within the next several years along with P chikae.
