These snakes are found in Sumatra, Malaysian Peninsula, and Borneo. However, the few known specimens have a

strange pattern of distribution. Specimens of A. weberi come from west-central Sumatra and south-central Kalimantan, Borneo, and the specimens of A. leonardi were caught in central peninsular Malaysia and in Sabah, near the northeast coast of Borneo. It seems likely that these specimens represent either a single species or a number of species different from current accounts.
