Mishmi Hills, north-east India.
Closely related to L. impejanus. Recently described subspecies arunachalensis#R differs in its all-white vs white-tipped chestnut tail of male (3), and darker grey female, with olive-grey vs greyish-white lower back, rump and tail (1); geographical arrangement, however, still unclear, with some evidence of intergradation, so research on this and on further differences between the taxa is needed in order to determine taxonomic status of the new form. E race orientalis sometimes subsumed within nominate, but seems distinct enough (male’s tailband clearly narrower). Three subspecies recognized.
