Restricted to montane streams of the Knuckles Range in Mahaweli Basin, but exact distributional range not clearly understood as it is often confused with G. ceylonensis (Ref. 11966). A much wider range is proposed in unpublished reports (Ref. 6028). Siltation poses threat to the fish population (Ref. 11966).
