Guangzhou (Canton), China.
See P. divaricatus. Often considered conspecific with P. roseus, primarily because the two apparently interbreed in S China (S Guangdong), where a small, possibly now stable population with mixed characters occurs in Xijiang Valley (this population initially described as separate species, P. stanfordi, and subsequently often regarded as a race of P. roseus); no sign of hybridization where ranges closely approach each other or overlap elsewhere in S China, and zone of occurrence of “stanfordi” sufficiently restricted to suggest that parent forms now behave as separate species; further study required. Monotypic.
C, S & SE China from SE Gansu and S Shaanxi E to S Jiangsu, S to S Guizhou, Guangxi, Guangdong and Fujian; non-breeding to S China (Yunnan), S Myanmar (Tenasserim), Thailand (S to Trang, including Phuket I), Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam.
