The two known specimens of this species were collected during field work in Netravali Wildlife Sanctuary at the foothills of the Western Ghats of Goa. The specimens were collected during the post-monsoon season of 2016, when the top 4 cm thick leaf-litter and 2-3 cm of soil was disturbed to reveal the collected individuals within the soil. The area where the specimens were collected is situated at an elevation of 445 m above sea level with thick forest canopy, mostly dominated by moist-deciduous tree species. The forest floor was still wet from the just concluded monsoons and the temperature at the site on the time of collection was 33C.
