Borabhum, central India.
Taxonomic status of this species and C. poliogenys (which see) uncertain; the two hybridize extensively in E India (Eastern Ghats), and race vernayi of latter recently considered to be the result of such interbreeding; detailed review of both forms urgently required. Hitherto treated as conspecific with C. sumatrensis (which see). Claim in HBW that race jerdoni might merit species status apparently based on comparisons with taxa here treated under C. sumatrensis. E range limit of nominate race unclear, but claimed occurrence in Myanmar no longer upheld#R. Two subspecies recognized.
