Habitat & Distribution

The species was collected from a shaded stream margin with volcanic gravel and roots, that site can be strongly flooded after rain (Hendrich & Balke 1995, Bali: Ubud, Monkey Forest, this site was revisited by Suprayitno several times but without beetle observations which might be due to heavy pollution of the stream). A similar habitat was encountered in Manggis at locality BALI_NS_2016_09

The species is known from Indonesia: Sumatra, Siberut, Bali, Flores.
