 Comments
       
  Comment: Status: CITES - Appendix II; IUCN - Lower Risk (lc)  
    Comments: See comments under T. belangeri. In the past many additional taxa have been included in the synonymy of T. glis (e.g. see Chasen, 1940, and Corbet, in Corbet and Hill, 1992). Even with the separation of belangeri, chrysogaster, longipes, palawanensis, moellendorffi, and their synonyms, T. glis still retains many forms of uncertain rank and validity. Pending a detailed study, no subspecies are listed, but many if not most of the named insular forms are distinctive (see Lyon, 1913)
