This species is distributed in the Malaysian archipelago, in south Asia, specifically peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra and Borneo. It is quite distinctive, with the colored cup-shaped calyx and bright red fairly short flowers. While similar to A. tricolor, it doesn’t have the black and light stripes,and tends to have a longer corolla.
