#R, “les montagnes du Thibet chinois” = western Sichuan, China.
Has been considered conspecific with T. henrici, although differences considerable; proposed form “gucenense”, from Chayul Valley, in Qamdo (SE Xizang), has been judged to be a hybrid between these two. Proposed races prjevalskii (from E Qinghai and Gansu E to Hubei, S to N Yunnan and W Guizhou) and bonvaloti (from near Lamda, Xizang) regarded as indistinguishable from birds elsewhere in range; and named races do not conform well to intra-species genetic lineages#R. Monotypic.
China from E Qinghai and adjacent N Gansu (SE Qilian Shan) E to SW Nei Monggol (Helan Shan), S to SE Xizang, C Yunnan, W Guizhou, S Shaanxi and W Hubei, and extreme NE India (extreme E Arunachal Pradesh).
