 Comments
       
  Comment: CITES: Appendix I per 2011 Checklist of CITES Species Part 1 CITES species index published with amendments to the Appendices and changes in standard scientific nomenclature following the 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties (Doha, 2010). For current status see CITES.org  
    Comments: Reviewed by Churcher (1993, Mammalian Species, 453). Restriction of type locality to Lake Zwai (Roosevelt and Heller, 1914) is erroneous, as there are no records of the species from this lake region (Yalden et al., 1986)  
    US ESA: Listed Threatened, as published in Federal Register Volume 44, Number 163, Pages 49218 - 49220, August 21, 1979
